We will meet at the Miwok Meadows sign on North San Pedro Road in San Rafael and look for egrets, ducks and other waterfowl occupying the salt and freshwater marsh. This will be a flat hike along a fire road to Miwok Meadows and is stroller friendly. Become a nature detective, looking for signs of animals such as scat, feathers and woodrat nests along the trail. We will be spending some time at Miwok Meadows picnic area to explore, play games and do some arts and crafts activities followed by lunch and nature play.
