Museum Field Trip to the North Etiwanda Preserve

Registration is now open for a field trip led by Gerald Braden, research biologist at the San Bernardino County Museum. The trip, scheduled for Saturday, April 30, will explore Alluvial Fan Sage Scrub in the North Etiwanda Preserve.

“This habitat, most of which occurs only in the San Bernardino Valley, is very endangered,” said Braden. “We will explore its formation, its recent history, and the plants and animals that depend upon it, with a special focus on birds.”

The North Etiwanda Preserve is located above Rancho Cucamonga. The half-day trip will leave the County Museum at 7:00 a.m. and return about 2:00 p.m. “We will be hiking over rough terrain for about 4 miles,” said Braden, “so be certain to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and sturdy, comfortable hiking boots. And, of course, your very best binoculars!”

The cost of the trip is $50 per person ($40 for members of the San Bernardino County Museum Association), which includes transportation, a light breakfast, lunch, and beverages. Children aged 9 and over are welcomed but must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited and pre-paid reservations are required.

Registration forms are available at the museum or on-line at “The North Etiwanda Preserve” is one of a series of field trips organized by the San Bernardino County Museum Association to offer the opportunity to learn about our region’s cultural and natural history accompanied by a museum curator.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. For more information, visit or call (909) 307-2669 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
