Coffee Constitutional in Northbrae

Join one of BPWA's co-founders on this easy ramble. You'll visit Berkeley's first columbarium at the Northbrae Community Church as well as the Sacred Hoop Meditation Garden that honors Native American spirituality. You will also see the site that was proposed for the State Capitol in 1908. Jacque's route will include some rock parks and a few of the paths that she has enjoyed since she was a child, including Fountain Walk and Mendocino Path. The walk will cover about two miles with some mild hills. Leader Jacque Ensign will also offer a shorter, flatter option.
