Anderson Marsh State Historic Park announces 2020 Nature Walk schedule; first hike set for Feb. 8

LOWER LAKE, Calif. – Anderson Marsh State Historic Park will resume holding monthly guided nature walks starting in February.

There is no charge for the walks and parking is free for those attending.

The next walk will be at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8.

There will be a tour of the historic Anderson Ranch House after the February walk. Rain will cancel the walk. If rain cancels the walk, the Ranch House tour will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Guided nature walks at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park will be held in 2020 on the second Saturday of each month, with the exception of December. All walks begin at 8:30 a.m. There will be a tour of the historic Anderson Ranch House after many of these walks.

The nature walk in January was held on New Year’s Day as part of the national First Day Hikes program. The seventh annual First Day Hike at Anderson Marsh attracted more than 130 people and everyone had a chance to enjoy the park on a clear winter day.

For the third consecutive year, the Jan. 1 hike at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park had the largest number of people attending of all of the Jan. 1 hikes in the California State Parks system.

February’s nature walk will be led by park docents Henry Bornstein and Lisa Wilson. The hike will last about two hours. Participants should bring binoculars if they have them, bring water and wear sturdy shoes and a hat. The route taken will depend on the weather and the condition of the trails.

Participants are asked to arrive at the parking lot by 8:15 a.m. so they can have time to explore the wildlife found in the ranch house yard.

According to hike co-leader Henry Bornstein, who is also a certified California Naturalist, “Winter is a great time to visit the park because the trees are bare, allowing a better view of the birds. We will be looking for the year-round resident birds and animals such as the great blue herons and great egrets, as well as white pelicans, hawks, diving ducks and grebes, and other birds which winter over at the park.”

Anderson Marsh State Historic Park is located on Highway 53, between Lower Lake and Clearlake.
