Interview with Diane Renshaw on Wildflowers and Birds of Tassajara
with Diane Renshaw, Myo-on Gloria Lee
and Daiyu Judith Randall

May 7-10 (Thursday-Sunday)

Everyone welcome.

Experience the glory of Spring in the wilderness landscape surrounding Tassajara.

Over and over, the cycle of seasons brings change both familiar and unexpected to the mountains surrounding Tassajara. In the springtime birds, butterflies and wildflowers are present in glorious abundance. This will be the sixth year since fire swept through these mountains, and the re-vegetation and recovery of the landscape continues to be a marvel to witness. Join us as we celebrate the season, hike on a variety of trails through the landscape, sit by the creek, soak in the glory of the night sky, and contemplate our place in this cycle of constant change.

Retreat fee: $265 ($225/Member)
