Members-only walk to Charleston Cemetery, April 1

We are planning a walk to Charleston Cemetery on April 1.  The walk will be lead by docent Richard Bauer.  Due to the fragile nature of the site and the difficulty in reaching it, we are limiting participation to 20 people, members only.  Members may bring one guest if they wish.

The walk will depart from the Charleston Bridge parking area at 9 a.m.  The walk is approximately 3 to 3.5 miles round trip and will involve some bushwhacking and uneven terrain.  Participants will need to be prepared for the weather with hats, sunscreen, and plenty of water.

If you are interested in this walk, please send an email to fspr@sanpedroriver.org. Remember, this is for members only plus one guest, limited to 20 people.
