Naturalist leads Fallen Leaf Lake hike

Provided to the Tribune

Join Charles Quinn, author of “A Nature Guide to the Southwest Tahoe Basin,” including Desolation Wilderness and Fallen Leaf Lake, from 4 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 3, for a nature walk and discussion about Fallen Leaf Lake flora and fauna.

A book-signing and wine-and- cheese reception will follow at the Fallen Leaf Lake Store.

There is no charge for the event. Meet in front of the new store building by 4 p.m. to participate in the naturalist-led walk along Glen Alpine Creek.

Return to the store for a beverage, snack and conversation at around 5 p.m.

An avid hiker of all the trails in Desolation Wilderness, Quinn is a remarkable resource to those interested in learning about all things natural in the Fallen Leaf basin.

As the longest-serving naturalist at Stanford Sierra Camp during his college years, and attending Sierra Camp from youngster to adult for at least one week every summer, Quinn became inspired to study, research, scout for, and perfect his knowledge of the birds, mammals, reptiles and plants in the woods.
