Take the whole family back a billion years and walk forward to the present around Lake Merritt (5 km = 3.1 miles). Follow dozens of signs describing the history of our Earth and its life. Personnel from UC Berkeley and NCSE will answer your questions as you travel through time around the lake and back to the Rotary Nature Center. Start anytime before 3PM to finish before the Center closes at 5.

[Billions of dinosaurs and other animals were harmed in the making of this history.]

Snacks, drinks, and goodies for the kids while they last. Test your knowledge with a trivia quiz. In-park parking $5. Street parking free.

The Billion-Year Walk is sponsored by the
Rotary Nature Center,
University of California Museum of Paleontology,

and NCSE
in partnership with the Lawrence Hall of Science.
