    Take a leisurely walk with Robin under majestic live oaks as you learn about the intriguing lives of the native plants, birds, and other wildlife that cross our path during this 2-hour excursion along Smith Creek, a shady riparian woodland lined with Coast Live Oaks, willows, elderberry, and more. Smith Creek flows through the 2400-acre Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley, and has provided water to the resort since its early days as a ranch and stage coach stop. Robin will focus on uses of trail-side native plants for food, healing, and utilitarian uses. Also revealed will be the underground, unseen connection between the oaks and all the plants in the community that sustains the entire ecosystem. Birds and other wildlife will be identified, and Robin will tell their interesting natural history stories.
