Latino Conservation Nature Walk
On July 18, we had our Latino Conservation nature walk at Kenneth Hahn state park where Tania and I leaded a tour about native plants and bird migration. We had a small group attend but we were still able to make it work. I led the tour through the native garden where I spoke about their adaptations in California’s mediterrian weather and how our Chumash natives used these plants in their lives.Tania added in the names of these plants in Spanish. Then walked to the humming bird garden where we saw Humming birds, Mourning doves, House Sparrows, and a female Hooded Oriole. She mentioned flyways, stopover sites, and lots of interesting facts about migration. In the end we stayed behind a bit longer to watch the birds around us.
