Friends of Cabrillo,
Hope all is well in your worlds. Plants are starting to come up and and hopefully we will have some flowers in the next couple of months. Some updates below…..for your eyes.
Special Events Meeting, 1:30pm March 19th
If you are interested in attending come on out. Some things to talk about; Parks and Open Spaces Day and Healthy and Sustainable Parks Day
Dusty Socks Club Hike, March 22nd 11:00am
This one is going to be out at Torrey Pines State Reserve. Please spread the work to your spheres of influence. Come on out and learn about San Diego’s native plants as you breath in the beautiful views of Torrey Pines. The group meets up top at the visitor center. TP is a state park and you need to pay to get in. However, you can walk in or ride your bike in for free. For more information about Torrey Pines Sate Reserve, here is their website. The hike will last about an hour and is rated easy. If you want to make it more challenging (and beautiful) you can continue down to the beach after the guided hike or walk up from the beach to meet the group.
Parks and Open Spaces Saturday June 7th
It is back again and we are gearing up for another festive event. Along with our standard booth set up and presentations we are having a group of pre 1916 cars coming out to park around the lighthouse. If you would like to help out for the event you can sign up on volgistics. If you would like to do a presentation, lead a hike or juggle on that day for the public please send me an email with “I joculari” in the subject line.
This might be scheduled for May 14th at 6:30. I will let you know as soon as I get details
Herps and You, Friday June 13th 6:30
SDSU Evolutionary Biologist Stephen Rice is loaded with slithering stories of snakes and salamanders. He has a lot of field experience throughout San Diego County and is ready to share his world with us. Learn about the reptilian world at Cabrillo and hear about Stephen’s genetics study on rattlesnakes. There is a full moon so we can enjoy that. We also plan to take a walk to one of our arrays to see what might be waiting for us. Please RSVP with “descent of species” in the subject line
