Join Sanctuary Forest and the Lost Coast Interpretive Association on Saturday, July 7th as they lead participants ages 7-12 on the Hidden Valley Trail at the King Range National Conservation Area, one of three Redwood EdVenture Quests in Southern Humboldt.  Environmental lessons and fun activities on the Hidden Valley hike will focus on ecosystems, landmarks, native plants, wildflowers, animals and local history.
