Welcome to spring! We had some beautiful weather this weekend, I hope everyone was able to get out and enjoy it. It looks like there might be a chance of rain Tuesday morning, but otherwise should be another perfect week.
Next Saturday you can join the Friends of Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve for a Vernal Pool Walk! Join naturalist Mike Kelly for a walk through San Diego’s most endangered habitats, the vernal pool. See and learn about the extremophiles, the endangered plants and animals that live in or around these short lived pools. Visit the pools every few weeks with us to see the amazing changes in plants and critters. Meet at 11101 Taloncrest Way, San Diego 92121 (off Calle Cristobal in Mira Mesa). Visit the Friends of Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve website for more information, or visit our Events Page for even more upcoming hikes and events.
If you haven’t hit up Anza-Borrego yet this season, here’s another reason to make the trip. The annual Swainson’s Hawk migration is happening right now. The Union-Tribune has a good article on the phenomenon, so get out there soon to enjoy both the birds and the wildflowers!
