About the Event
Meet us at Compton Creek Natural Park, where CNC staff will check in participants. We will board a bus, where we will cruise through the Santa Monica Mountains and arrive to Temescal Canyon Park for some interactive activities near the amphitheater.
You will then have the option to join Program Coordinator Zee Zetino on a partial hike to Temescal Canyon Trail or join our Lead Naturalist, Bree Salazar for a Native Tree program. After lunch, we will dive into the art of nature journaling, so bring a writing tool and a used or new notebook where you can write and draw to participate in this activity. If you don’t have a notebook, we can provide you with materials to join in on the fun.
As a reminder, we will spend 9am-4pm (7 hours) together so make sure you bring enough water, a nice filling lunch, and curiosity for the outdoors. Please make sure to arrive on time (early), so that we can get to Temescal Canyon Park and follow our schedule accordingly. The bus will not be able to wait, so make sure to get there on time.
When registering for this event: please make sure to add your correct email and phone number so that you can receive more details of what to expect on our trip, and if we need to further contact you about any program changes.
Please note: The hike will consist of a moderate incline with a narrow path that includes dirt and rocky terrain, so please make sure to bring comfortable shoes with a good grip/traction. Part of this trail is exposed to sun, so bring proper layers and protection. In general, please dress in layers since we are expecting it to be warm.
If you need any accommodations or need to communicate anything in particular to keep in mind on our Transit to Trails, please reach out to our Program Coordinator Zee Zetino, firstname.lastname@example.org .
