Saturday, August 26, 2017 - 2 pm - SEED meeting

at Santa Margarita Environmental Reserve (SMER)

Please RSVP.  I will be at the Ballast Point Brewery at 1:30pm, leaving at 1:45pm in case anyone would want to carpool or car caravan to the North Station of SMER.  
To get there from I-15,  you travel west up Rancho California rd until the sharp curve that is almost to the top and make a left on Via Santa Rosa and go 1.5 miles to Via Tornado.  Go about half a mile to entrance (yellow pipe gate).  It's about 4.5 miles from the exit.  Ballast Point Brewery parking lot is behind the restaurant.
We'll hike the Nature Trail and then have a discussion about the site for class visits, the new intern program and the Wildlife Crossing at I-15.  
We'll have snacks and water, but bring your own water bottle for the short hike---hats, etc.
