Easy Evening Nature Walk @Upper Las Virgenes Canyon, Open Space Preserve
For this evening program called "Around the Clock Nature" head to the Open Space Preserve at Upper Las Virgenes Canyon for a moderate 1/2 mile hike: "As night approaches, you may be thinking about finishing your day and going to bed. In nature, life continues around the clock. This is the time for owls to take over for the hawks, and for plants to do some deep breathing. Wit­ness nature's changing of the guard from day to night on an easy walk." Meet at the Victory Blvd. entrance trailhead. 2 hours.
