2022 Spring Pine Hill Preserve Tours
Beginning in April, the Pine Hill Preserve (PHP), in coordination with the El Dorado Chapter of the California Native Plant Society (CNPS), will offer a guided bird tour and three guided plant tours in different areas of the Preserve. The tours are free and open to the public. There is a limit of 20 participants per tour. Led by volunteer naturalists, each plant tour will focus primarily on the plants growing within the chaparral and oak woodland ecosystems of the Pine Hill Preserve, but will also include information about wildlife, pollinators, and geology.
