Open House 2012 Re-cap

Get the flash player here:
Hello all,

Thank-you to all the staff, volunteers, field trip leaders and evening presenters for making the open house event a success, and to the two girl scout troops conducting a service project removing invasive yellow-star thistle.

More than 70 adults and kids attended, including a good turnout for the birding and native plant identification field trips. The fundraising auction and merchandise sales generated more than $700 for the project's operating expenses and internship support.

Those who stayed on throughout the evening enjoyed the complimentary wine tasting by Saucelito Canyon winery, evening potluck dinner (and Jim's famous upside down cake for dessert!) and PowerPoint presentations by our guest speakers.

We will be planning an event this spring, will keep you posted. - Steve Schubert
