Sand Canyon Wildflower Hike

May 17 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

sand canyon


Join SJMA and local expert, Al Schneider, for an educational walk through Sand Canyon with the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. Participants will learn detailed information about the native flora, the fragile desert environment, and why Leave No Trace principles are so important. We plan to stop for lunch/snack during the hike. All participants will be encouraged to contribute to the discussions since we all have knowledge of some or all of the discussion topics.

When: May 17, 2021 from 9:00am – about 1:00pm

Where: Sand Canyon and Rock Creek Trailhead (the second parking lot coming from Cortez); if interested in carpooling, reach out to Adriana Stimax at astimax@sjma.org

What to Bring: Plenty of water, a hat, sunscreen, snacks and/or lunch, hiking shoes/boots appropriate for uneven rocky ground, mask, appropriate layers, and a camera.  Masks or maintaining 6 feet of social distance required. Please note, there are no restrooms in Sand Canyon. Please leave your furry friends at home.
