Fall Color at Rock Creek Trail

(off Highway 20, on Forest Road 20-3)
We visited this trail in the spring to appreciate the diversity of orchid species and are now returning to enjoy fall colors!
Early November is a great time to visit Rock Creek to see Mountain and Creek Dogwoods, Big Leaf Maples, California Hazelnuts, and other California Natives put on a show!
Restrooms and picnic tables at trailhead.
This hike is suitable for children; we encourage families to attend.
Drive Highway 20 east from Nevada City for 6 miles. Make a left turn at the “Forestry Conservation Camp” sign and follow the paved road for about a mile. Look for the “Rock Creek Nature Trail” sign at the left turn. Drive about 1.5 miles of unpaved road to the trailhead parking.

Carpooling is encouraged so please let us know if you are interested in carpooling in the RSVP form and we will pick an appropriate location to meet.
Lots of water, sunscreen, rain gear/windbreaker, and hat. Plan to bring a sack lunch to extend the opportunity to continue native-plant conversations.
Redbud Plant Propagation Group
Native Plant Seed Exchange and Seed Propagation Workshop
(date and location to be determined based on interest).
Members of the Redbud Propagation Group have been collecting seeds all summer and fall from a wide range of local native plants growing in our gardens. We will bring these seeds to exchange and share tips on growing specific species.
CEmail firstname.lastname@example.org to become a member of the Redbud Propagation Group, and to get details and/or register for this event.
Note: We also hope to schedule a workshop on propagating native plants from cuttings if there is enough interest (date & location to be determined) -- we will need at least 12 confirmed registrants. There will be a materials fee to cover the cost of rooting hormones, pots, and potting mix. Cuttings from several varieties of local native plants will be available. Let us know if you are interested in participating in this propagation workshop by emailing email@example.com.
