Description

Explore California State Park's Peace Valley in the Sutter Buttes. It will be like stepping back in time as you learn about Peace Valley's natural and cultural history. We will visit a Native American site used for grinding acorns. As we traverse this incredible valley, we will learn the interesting geological processes that formed it. This is an undeveloped area and involves some moderate uphill hiking, so wear sturdy hiking boots. Bring a sack lunch and beverage. No early departures on this trip.
