Mangini Ranch Meditation Hike
August 6, 2022 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 amFree
Beat the summer heat on this early morning outing on Mangini Ranch. Save Mount Diablo’s 208-acre property includes the headwaters of Galindo Creek with rolling grasslands, oaks, buckeyes, and a rare desert olive grove. Visit a secret spring and keep your eyes out; you might see bobcats and coyotes looking for breakfast, plus burrowing owls, quail, and many other feathered friends who are active in the morning. This is a two-hour hike with one strenuous climb. Three to five short meditations will be offered during the hike.
Be sure to bring a mask, plenty of water, a snack, and dress in layers. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are recommended. Heavy rain cancels.
Participants will be required to accept our COVID-19 Protocol (available during registration).
