May’s EcoLink Field Trip is to the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Gardens in Claremont! On Sunday May 22 at 10am, we will meet at the old Borders Parking Lot at Bellflower and Stearns in East Long Beach to carpool up to the Botanical Gardens. Garden admission is free for RSABG members; $8 adults; $6 seniors and students; $4 children 3-12. Also, they will be holding a sale of succulent, cactus and agave plants on the day we will be there plus they will have their butterfly pavilion for an extra $2. I, as always, suggest bringing your own sack lunch (or lunch money plus a good argument to grab lunch somewhere) and some extra cash to help out the driver of your carpool.
Oh, and EcoLink Partner Timothy Dunham of Somethings Creative is hosting a Conservation Arts Show at Viento y Agua on May 21st. Check out the attached flier for more information!
Also, EcoLink will be facilitating a Northwest Earth Institute “Sense of Place” reading circle. The reading material is $20. This reading circle is one of my favorites and definitely worth it. For more information on NWEI or Sense of Place check out their site: http://www.nwei.org/ and to sign up for the reading circle, please contact Chris Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a limit of 20 people, so please RSVPsoon.
