About the program:
This event will be an off-PAC site that will visit Annadel State Park, for a private access hike to the fire-damaged--and regenerating--marsh and forest areas off Old Bennett Valley Road.  Using the National Parks exhibition as a conceptual spring, the visit will include writings and subsequent readings based on guided experiences and observations from fire-damaged areas of the park.
