We are offering guided hikes of the Dye Creek Preserve’s canyon trail this fall.

Recent rains have brought new vibrancy to the Lassen foothills as long-dormant seeds awaken. This fall we invite you to witness the stark beauty of this landscape by attending a hike at the Dye Creek Preserve.

This season's hikes in the Dye Creek canyon will be on Sunday, November 14 and Saturday, December 11. During the 5-mile hikes we will walk backwards in geologic time, observe native plants and animals, and discuss the cultural history of this land. Participants should be prepared to traverse a rocky creek and navigate areas of steep, rugged terrain. Hikes are guided by knowledgeable volunteer docents and hosted by the Resource Conservation District of Tehama County (RCDTC) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC).

All hikes are free and open to the public, but space is limited! 

REGISTRATION: Please email with your requested hike date, number of youth and adults in your group, and your phone number. You can also register by calling Brin Greer at 530-727-1295. Participants under 18 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
