LOWER LAKE, Calif. – Join the Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association on New Year’s Day at noon to participate in the seventh annual “First Day Hike” at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park.

America's State Parks’ “First Day Hikes” program offers individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year by getting outside, enjoying nature and welcoming the New Year with friends and family.

This family-friendly event begins on Wednesday, Jan. 1, at noon.

Members of the Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association will help lead and organize the walk.

Participants should wear sturdy shoes and a hat. Bring water, snacks, and binoculars if you have them. Children of all ages are welcome.

Because this area is a protected natural preserve, no dogs may be brought on this walk.

Hikers will experience grasslands, oak woodlands, willow and cottonwood riparian habitats and the tule marsh habitat of the Anderson Marsh Natural Preserve, and may encounter a variety of migrating and resident birds and other wildlife.

The hike will be a leisurely three and a half mile long loop over the Cache Creek Nature Trail, the Marsh Trail and the Ridge Trail, passing by a vernal pool near the end of the walk. The hike will take between two and two and a half hours.

Steady rain will cancel the walk. To confirm or check for cancellation information, call 707-995-2658, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit AMIA’s Facebook page at .
