Hike Advisory for Carr Ranch Opening Event on Saturday October, 14

Our thoughts and prayers go to everyone affected by the tragic fires in the North Bay.

The Dedication and Opening of Carr Ranch will be held on October 14th at Rancho Laguna Park in Moraga, and we hope to see you there. However, due to poor air quality issues caused by the smoke from the fires, the hikes and other activities are postponed. We will do a short walk if conditions allow. We’ll schedule another day of hiking in early November, and look forward to sharing beautiful Carr Ranch with you at that time.

The Carr Ranch Dedication ceremony at Rancho Laguna Park will be held as planned, and we’ll have food trucks at the park for those attending.
