I spent a marvelous day today with my fellows in the California Naturalist Program at the UCSC Arboretum. We were wrapping up a 10 week program by presenting our "capstone projects."
Such a variety of wonderful projects there were, too, all to do with sharing nature with others and promoting understanding of our local area's natural treasures. I'll write about them another time. This is just a quick post...
But in the meantime, you can read all about the California Naturalist Program -- which is a statewide program that YOU may be able to participate in if you live in the state -- in an article I wrote for the Santa Cruz Sentinel. It was my "capstone project" for the program:
California Naturalist Program offers learning with a huge dollop of fun.
I urge you to read the article - not because I'm puffing myself - but because the program has been so FANTASTIC! -- and I hope to blog more about different aspects of it over the upcoming weeks.
It's Memorial Day Weekend here in the States. May you enjoy barbecues with friends and family -- and give some thought to the military people who have given their all.
