365 Things To Do In Palos Verdes – Forrestal Nature Preserve Public Hike

Have you ever wanted to hike through the Forrestal Nature Preserve but didn’t want to go by yourself?  Now you can put on your hiking boots and get first-hand information from the Docents of the Los Serenos de Point Vincente.  On Saturday, March 26, 2011, at 10:00 a.m., the docents will lead you on this moderate hike for about two hours and will educate you about the local geology.  You will be enjoying the preserve’s hiking trails which offer beautiful views, majestic canyons, and magnificent foliage.  You might also see red-tailed hawks, wild rabbits,  and threatened plants and animals such as a coastal sage scrub, the cactus wren or the California Gnatcher.  This sometimes overlooked preserve is on the south side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula located just off Palos Verdes Drive South. You will park at Ladera Linda which is the former elementary school site.  The Ladera Linda Discovery Room is located there also, with its extensive collection of samples of the area’s geology and wildlife.  It has been staffed since 1982 and is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. from 1:00 -5:00 p.m.
