Discover Diablo - Lime Ridge Family Saunter

09:00 am - 12/08/2018

@ Ohlone Trail Parking Area

Southwest of intersection of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Cowell Rd.
Walnut Creek CA  94598



A century ago, Lime Ridge supplied some of the lime and sand needed for California’s industrial expansion. Today it is a nature preserve for rare plants and animals with plenty of hiking trails and bike roads, but you can still see the scars of quarries and the remains of railroad equipment used by the Henry Cowell Lime and Cement Company to carry limestone to its plant in Cowell, which is now the Crossings neighborhood in Concord. Join us to discuss the natural and the manmade history of Lime Ridge. Be sure to bring plenty of water, a snack, and dress in layers. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots recommended. Heavy rain cancels.
