Hike the Dawson- Los Monos Preserve in Vista

Vista CA- Back by popular demand, here is your chance to see what is behind that fence in one of our lessor known preserves on the border of Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista. This annual hike is sponsored by Preserve Calavera and will take place on Sunday October 26, 2014 from 1:00PM -3:00PM. The hike will take place in the Dawson- Los Monos Preserve.

The preserve was donated by Ida Dawson to UCSD and is now used for research. This will be a slow-paced walk led by noted local botanist and preserve manager Isabelle Kay.

Learn about the history of this area, the varied plants and wildlife literally in our backyards, and the challenges of managing an island of natural space in the middle of suburbia. Wear good hiking/walking shoes, hat and sunscreen and bring water.

Meet in the parking lot by the duck pond in Buena Vista Park, Vista. Enter the parking lot from Shadowridge Dr., west of South Melrose Dr. Please RSVP to info@preservecalavera.org or call Diane at 760-724-3887
