Bike the Watershed 4

The Gallinas Watershed Council held our fourth annual bike ride through the watershed on August 16, 2014.

Our 4th Annual GWC “BIKE THE WATERSHED” Bicycle Tour took place in North San Rafael near McInnis Park.

We had several stops along the way including at the SMART train tracks and the wetlands near the LGVSD ponds.

We started and ended up at McInnis Park at the Mt. Tam Picnic Area.

After the ride there was a picnic and we talked about what we saw and learned on our ride.

BIKE THE WATERSHED is a FREE event.
