Know Your Island Walk

Posted October 21, 2017 at 12:14 pm by

This is the last Know Your Island Walk for 2017 —  a lit­tle his­to­ry with a walk on the Wild West Side.

Doug McCutchen will take us on the main trails through the west side with a focus on eco­log­i­cal and human his­to­ry includ­ing lime min­ing, agri­cul­ture, tribes and first nations, Hawai­ians, fish traps and com­mer­cial fish­ing, geol­o­gy, and eco­log­i­cal history.

Total length is 2 miles. Rat­ing: Mod­er­ate on gen­tle trails. After the for­mal walk any­one who is inter­est­ed and phys­i­cal­ly able is invit­ed to do a pre­view of the pro­posed trail route up the Reiss prop­er­ty. It would add about anoth­er mile and is steep, rocky with uneven terrain.

Dogs on leash­es are wel­come. Meet at the Lime Kiln State Park and car pool.

Sat­ur­day Octo­ber 28 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
