A Look Back at the Natural and Cultural History of Two Icons of the Park

Saturday Sept. 12 9 am to 2:30 pm


Saturday, Sept. 12 brings a rare opportunity, limited to 15 participants, to explore the natural and cultural history of two icons at Jack London State Historic Park—the 2,000-year-old ancient Redwood Tree and the historic 100-year-old orchard. Admission for the hike and story telling, which runs from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm., is $15, (which includes the parking fee.)

California State Park Senior Archeologist Breck Parkman and Ecology Historian Arthur Dawson explain what it was like 2,000 years ago when the first growth redwood began as well as discussing its environment and how it has survived 2,000 years of cultural and environmental changes. The historic 100-year-old Orchard nearby has a turbulent story, which is recounted by Park volunteer and orchard historian, Jeff Falconer.

Participants can expect a moderate and fairly slow-paced 6-mile hike punctuated with stories along the way. Wear sturdy shoes, bring lunch and plenty of water for this full day outing. Please note hiking will be on uneven, rocky, dirt trails with some elevation gain and loss, which may not be suitable for everyone.

The September 12 History Hike is at Jack London State Historic Park (2400 London Ranch Road in Glen Ellen). Meet in the Ranch Parking lot to begin the hike at 9:00 am. Space is limited to 15 participants so advance reservations, which can be made online at are recommended. Call (707) 938-5216 for questions or more information.

Fee: $15.00
