Following a successful 2013 walkathon, The Friends of Coyote Hills have scheduled a 5K walk for this Saturday, November 8, from 9:30 – 1:00 p.m. Details can be found here:
The 2013 walk was a family friendly preview of the benefits conserving all of the remaining Coyote Hills as open space would bring. Healthy exercise, booths about the natural history and wildlife of the area (with live birds of prey!), and a good community experience meeting neighbors await those who participate..
The Rag urges readers to register as walkers or just register and hang out and enjoy the day supporting the vision for a wilderness park right here in Fullerton. Details and the day’s agenda are below:
