Spend the day being inspired by the enchanting waters of the Wild & Scenic South Yuba River and GET WILD at night at the “Wild for the Yuba: Celebrating Regional Grapes, Hops and Bites” with your friends.
Docents from the South Yuba River Park Association (SYRPA) will be leading two guided walks, Saturday and Sunday, April 2 and 3 at 11 am (suggested donation $3) from historic Bridgeport Crossing. Meet at the Bridgeport “north” parking lot.
The Buttermilk Bend trail is well known among locals for its spectacular explosion of wildflowers most springs. Docents will identify the flowers and explain some of their natural history and traditional uses. Plan on 1.5 hours and 2 miles. No dogs please, however dogs are allowed on other trails in the park on a leash.
