Join Bob Moyer and members of the Friends of Government Canyon Activities Committee on a hike to explore the surprising diversity of green winter vegetation in Government Canyon SNA. Many wildflowers are already emerging this time of year and a number of interesting woody species provide habitat for migrating winter visitors. Participants should be able to hike 3 miles (round trip) over fairly level but unimproved trails. Dress for the weather, probably cold, and possibly wet, and wear sturdy shoes. Bring at least a liter of water and light snacks are also suggested. Group size is limited; participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian; no pets please. Reservations are required and accepted from noon January 16, 2013 through noon February 14, 2013. Meet at the rainwater harvesting tower at the GCSNA Visitor Center. For reservations or more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include name(s) of each participant, age if under 18, and email address and telephone number. Natural Area entrance fees apply.
