The Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS) and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) are sponsoring a hike (about 2 miles) along the trails of Sugar Pine Point State Park in search of wildlife and spectacular scenery.
TINS naturalist, Sarah Hockensmith, and TRTA guide, Jennifer Coon, will lead the way as we enjoy nature’s treasures before soaking up the great views of Lake Tahoe. Sarah will discuss natural history topics related to winter ecology, namely how various animals and plants cope with the short days, heavy snows, and freezing temperatures associated with winter in Tahoe, while Jennifer will enlighten us with facts and details about the Lake’s hydrology.
Please bring a bag lunch, as we will enjoy a lakeside picnic at the picnic tables near the Ehrman Mansion.
If the trails are covered in snow, TINS will be able to provide snowshoes at request. In addition, TINS can provide binoculars by request.
This is a free event but there is a parking fee of $5/per car (cash only).
