Sentenac Canyon & Cienega: Acquisition, Restoration and Research
January 13-14, 2017
Instructor: Dave Van Cleve, California State Parks, Retired
Twenty years ago, Anza-Borrego Foundation drastically changed its game plan. Instead of focusing only on small inholdings within the Park, ABF included the additional goals of connectivity, wildlife corridors, and outholdings to its land acquisition portfolio. The first transformative project was Sentenac Canyon, a privately held parcel in the San Felipe Valley.
We will take a hike to look at historic sites such as the Butterfield Stage site and the Sentenac brothers' "cabin", discuss the results of landscape restoration at Scissors Crossing, and explore the gallery riparian forest of San Felipe Creek.
Hike Level: Moderate. Hike includes both easy walking on dirt roads and navigating off trail up a rocky hillside
Bring: Day pack with lunch, water, hiking shoes, hat, sunscreen, and camping chair (optional) to eat lunch in the field.
Meet: Meet at the ABF office for carpooling. 2WD vehicles OK.
