Earth Day activities at Bouverie, Jack London and Quarryhill

Creekbottom canines

Last week I left you with the message that I would have more tales to tell of the Finns of Creekbottom, that is, the two Finnish Lapphunds that we have adopted from Pets Lifeline, Karhu the male, Sisu the female. I will leave that for the end of the column. For now, I have good news about special events in our town that I’d like to share. First are the various Earth Day celebrations.

Saturday celebrates  Earth Day

To celebrate Earth Day, which falls on Tuesday, April 22, events are available at Jack London State Historic Park, Bouverie Preserve of Audubon Canyon Ranch, Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, and Quarryhill Botanical Gardens on Saturday, April 26. Obviously, it’s a day to get outside and celebrate the beauty and bounty of our glorious Valley. Each event requires an advance sign-up, so make up your mind today where you’ll spend this Saturday and make your reservations now, without hesitation.

Taking good photos at JL State Park

Up the hill at Jack London State Park from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., professional photographers Neil and Susan Silverman are leading a one day intensive photography class, “How to Take a Good Photo.” A quick glance at their website gallery shows grand examples; better than good, they’re great.

The workshop is intended for beginners to advanced amateurs, but with limited availability. Required reservations for a beautiful Saturday at Jack London State Park with two inspiring teachers can be made in advance jacklondonpark.com or call 938-5216.
