Time: 8:30AM - 10:30AM

Instructor: Scot Pipkin

Location: Garden Grounds

Mornings are a perfect time to enjoy the uncrowded trails and the quiet serenity of the Garden. Join Scot Pipkin, the Garden's new Director of Education and Engagement, on a hike through the Garden's trails to raise both your heart rate and awareness of California natural history. As we climb trails, we will take breaks to catch our breath and take in views or observe plants, birds, and other wildlife. Bring a hat and comfortable walking shoes.

This class is one of our many quarterly discounted classes for members. See below for a complete list of this season's classes.

Instructor

Scot Pipkin was born and raised in San Diego, California. After attending UCLA and receiving a degree in Geography with an emphasis in biogeography, he has spent his career acquiring and sharing an understanding of the natural world that emphasizes the interconnections that surround us. This work has allowed him to work in some of the most beautiful and ecologically rich places in the Southwest, including Yosemite, the redwoods of the San Mateo Coast, Tejon Ranch, Saguaro National Park in Arizona, and the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico. Along the way, he received a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Arizona and spent countless hours identifying plants/birds/butterflies and anything else that he encountered while catching his breath on hikes.
