Ratto Ranch “Wildflower Walk” on Table Mountain-
On April 24, 2021 the public will have an opportunity to visit this private ranch. The Tuolumne County Land Trust (TCLT) is again hosting the “wildflower walk” which will showcase Table Mountain and other features on the famous 240 acre property. The unique wildflowers, vernal pools, and geology will be explored along with the ranch operations and film history. The event begins at 10 AM at 10500 Ratto Road and will end at 3pm. Columbia College staff will join other topic experts in guided tours of the property.
Bring your mask and prepare to practice social distancing due to the Covid situation. Come prepared for a moderate hike and the weather. This event will happen rain or shine. Bring your camera, sturdy shoes (that may get wet), a lunch, water, and other needed personal items. Please carpool if possible, since parking is limited. There will be no charge for this family-friendly event, but donations are welcome. This year there will be a kite-flying activity for the kids, weather permitting. Dogs are not allowed at the event. Please arrive before 10am for the registration and orientation.
