Day Hike to Scorpion Ranch, Santa Cruz Island

Join us for an exciting day trip to Santa Cruz Island, the largest and most diverse of the Channel Islands.  Participants will travel to Scorpion Bay by boat from Ventura. After the boat docks at Scorpion Anchorage, we will explore some of the eastern end of Santa Cruz Island on foot. Steve will lead participants on easy to moderate hiking while sharing his expert-level knowledge of island plants. 

All ages are welcome, however, participants must be in good physical condition. Bring lunch, water, binoculars, and a camera.  Wear layered clothing, sturdy hiking shoes, and bring a hat for sun protection.

We're sorry, this class is sold out.
