wildflowers blooming in serpentine rock at Coyote Ridge

Healing in Nature: Coyote Ridge – Postponed due to rain

Note: This event has been postponed because, due to heavy rain expected on Friday night, Máyyan ‘Ooyákma – Coyote Ridge will be closed on Saturday, March 30. If you signed up for this event, you should have received an email from [email protected] notifying you of a new date.

Join us at Máyyan ‘Ooyákma – Coyote Ridge Open Space Preserve to see the amazing native wildflowers that thrive in the rare serpentine soil habitat of this special place on March 30 from 10:00 a.m. – 12 p.m. Relax, renew, and rejuvenate by spending time in nature with the guidance of knowledgeable docents.

Enjoy a moderate, roughly two-mile trail walk accompanied by docents and a certified healer who will share information about the area’s history, describe the plants and animals that live in the preserve, and lead the group in calming, healing meditations that connect us more closely to nature. In addition to spring wildflowers, Coyote Ridge is home to a variety of rare and endangered plants and wildlife, including the Bay checkerspot butterfly, the Metcalf Canyon jewelflower, California red-legged frogs and tiger salamanders, tule elk, Western burrowing owls, and golden eagles. With luck we may encounter some of these on our walk!

Thank you to the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority for supporting this Healing in Nature outing.

This event is full. To join the waitlist please email [email protected].

About the name of this preserve: Máyyan ‘Ooyákma (pronounced My-yahn Oiy-yahkmah) directly translates to Coyote Ridge in the Chochenyo language. Chochenyo is the language stewarded by the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe of the San Francisco Bay Area, whose members trace their ancestry to the Indigenous Peoples, or aboriginal inhabitants, of this region.
