February 4, 10:30am, Black Diamond Mines

Usually we start these things in late March or early April. Usually it's pouring rain in January and February, or the trails are super muddy from the previous rain. Usually we're inside and itching to go outside.

This is definitely not a usual year and so we're starting Outside Kids early. Why not?

Join us on Saturday, February 4 at 10:30am at Black Diamond Mines for a walk and lots of exploring. I have wanted to go here for years but the Atlas Mine and the Visitor Center have both been closed for repairs. Enough is enough and we're going anyway. 

And maybe if we schedule this and count on beautiful weather, the forecast will change to rain? That wouldn't be so bad.


Directions:

Black Diamond is located in Contra Costa County, south of Pittsburg and Antioch. Take Highway 4 to the Somersville Road exit in Antioch, then drive south (toward the hills) on Somersville Road to the Preserve entrance. We'll meet in the parking lot near the Somerville Townsite.  Go past the Visitor Center and go until the road ends.
