Sustainable Pacific Grove presents a special screening of Call of the Forest. This film highlights the irreplaceable roles trees play in protecting and feeding the planet.
For the next excursion of the Junior Naturalist Club, we're headed to Point Lobos State Natural Reserve on November 17th. The club will gather near the Cypress Grove trail head at 10:00 am, and will embark on a 90-minute guided walk around the reserve at 10:15.
Learn about the amazing migration of the western monarch butterfly, sit in a butterfly chrysalis, dress up like a monarch, and more, all while learning about the animal that is so special to our area.
