March 9, 2016 (Tierrasanta) - Spring has arrived in Southern California and the green season is here – so the San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action is hosting its very first club outing and hike. What better way to enjoy the blooming benefit of this winter's El Niño rains than by taking a half-day hike in our backyard wilderness bounty, Mission Trails Regional Park?
The hike is this Sunday, March 13, at 9:00 .a.m. Meet at the Tierrasanta Entrance trailhead, at the east end of Clairemont Mesa. Blvd. in Tierrasanta. This is a moderate, three-mile round trip hike featuring spectacular views of the San Diego region and Fortuna Peaks, led by club members and trained naturalists Cara Furio and Renée Owens.
RSVP to hike organizer Brian Elliott if you'd like to go.
You'll want to arrive early as parking fills up quickly in the trailhead parking lot and at the end of Clairemont Mesa Blvd. Please arrive early and be ready to go at 9:00.
Hikers should be prepared with appropriate gear and footwear (it will probably be muddy), and must carry water. Reusable water containers like stainless steel bottles or Nalgenes are encouraged. Sunscreen and hats are also strongly recommended. All hikers will be asked to fill out a waiver before the hike commences. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP.
