- Modini Preserve
Learn some of the local and regional geology on a field excursion up Pine Flat Road with Iain Jamieson, a retired geologist who worked at the Geysers in the 1970’s. Iain is now a Bouverie Preserve docent, which has expanded his interest in nature. Be prepared for a drive with several stops and a modest hike to discuss the rock formations and geological history. Bring magnifiers and binoculars. Also bring lunch and extra water. Early teens may find this of interest.
