Hello Everyone,

I’m letting you know about May’s Nature Nights. Linda Voorheis will be speaking on the “Miwok and Yokuts Peoples”. Linda is a retired teacher from Manteca Unified that has continued to work as a teacher/coordinator for Manteca Unified in ‘American Indian Education’. She will be sharing her knowledge with us and may even have a special treat in store for us, we’ll have to wait and see.

 Other upcoming events include a Star Party on the 30th of May, Nature Nights on June 4th (we’re going to Thursdays for June, July and August) with J.D. Wikert of the US Fish and Wildlife Service speaking on “the Decline and Status of Central California Salmon and Steelhead”, Nature Nights June 18th will be a Crafts Night and we’re considering the possibility of basket weaving for that night, and tentatively another Star Party for Saturday June 27th. You can check the website, www.mgzoo.com, for these and other events happening in the San Joaquin County Parks.


Hope to see you there!
