Baker (R-San Ramon) will speak with constituents about state issues impacting the community and share a legislative update. An East Bay Parks naturalist will also be on hand and present information of interest.
The interactive hike is scheduled from 10-11 a.m. Saturday at Las Trampas Regional Wilderness, 18012 Bollinger Canyon Road. It will kick off Baker's second year of "walk and talk town halls."
