May 10, 2011 (San Diego) -- Mission Trails Regional Park, one of our City’s least known, great treasures, is open every day. But only once a year do dozens of volunteers, Park Rangers and community leaders host a large free event to help San Diegans learn more about their Park and how to enjoy it. On Saturday, May 21, residents of all ages are invited to the 2011 event: Explore Mission Trails Day On May 21, 2011, Mission Trails will hold activities free for all ages.
The younger children can learn about things like bats, nature walks, raptors, reptiles, and other animals. There will also be pony rides for the kids (until 1:30 p.m.) Older kids and adults will find nature discovery stations, a rock-climbing wall, hiking pole demos (7:30-11 a.m.). There will also be a star-gazing party.
