Are you ready for an invigorating hike? Lace up your boots and join staff from the John D. Spreckels Center on Monday, Nov. 18, at 8 a.m. to 1:40 p.m. for a docent-led, four-mile hike through Blue Sky Ecological Reserve. The 700-acre canyon, known locally as a hidden gem of Poway, is rich in its natural diversity of plants and animals. Deer, bobcats, quail, raptors, roadrunners, rabbits, bats, and many kinds of reptiles and amphibians inhabit the area. The trail is mostly flat, and is good for all levels of hikers. After the trek, there will be lunch at Urge Gastropub in Rancho Bernardo. Participants should dress in hiking- appropriate clothing, with comfortable, closed-toe shoes. Transportation, park admission, and guided tour are included in the cost, which is $40 for Coronado residents, and $50 for nonresidents.

Indulge yourself with some post hike calories at the Spreckels Center’s Annual Fall Harvest Festival. Join us for good times with old friends (or make new ones), sip coffee, enjoy a slice of pie and challenge your mind with a bit of trivia. Be social with us on Wednesday, November 20, 1 to 2:30 p.m. Admission is $4 for Coronado residents, and $6 for nonresidents. Seating is limited; register in advance.

To register or to receive additional information, visit the John D. Spreckels Center and Bowling Green at 1019 Seventh Street, call 619-522-7343, or visit online at www.coronado.ca.us/spreckels.
