Hillside Festival 

When: Sat., May 17, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2014
Price: free
With its eighty acres of forest, grassland, and creeks, there’s a lot to love about El Cerrito’s Hillside Nature Area, and this Saturday the park will get a dedicated celebration in the form of the first Hillside Festival. Meet near El Cerrito’s Recycling Center (7501 Schmidt Ln.) and participate in guided hikes led by the El Cerrito Trail Trekkers, a nature walk along the King Court Trailhead, and a workshop on how to garden with native plants, or try the pop-up bike park, constructed by the El Cerrito High School Mountain Bike Team. Berkeley historian Richard Schwartz will be on hand to discuss early California Native American life, and El Cerrito Historical Society president Rich Bartke will talk about the history of El Cerrito’s parks. Organizers also hope to raise awareness and funds for the Madera Open Space Campaign, which aims to help the city purchase an eight-acre piece of land in order to connect the northern and southern portions of the Hillside Nature Area.
