Field Tours

Thursday Afternoon Field Tours (ticket required)

We have two great options for conference attendees who want to get outside and continue their exploration of what the local urban forest holds.  

· Option 1: UC Berkeley. Choose from a campus tree tour with a stop at the forest pathology lab or a facilitated climbing experience up a giant coast live oak for first-time climbers (Box lunch included).

· Option 2: Tilden Regional Park.  Points of interest include 1) eucalyptus and acacia dieback with Matteo Garbelotto, 2) fire fuels discussion with East Bay Regional Parks Fire Department, and 3) a stop at the Tilden Botanical Garden (Box lunch included).

Tours will leave from the Marriott at 1:00pm and return at approximately 5:30pm
