Events Notice

Please make egg shell planters for the Earth Day Event on April 20 if you are able. For instructions please see the email Don distributed on 2/22/2019. The planters need to be started early enough so that each egg contains a sprouted seedling/flower. It would be helpful for contributors to know what flower each egg contains.

Our El Camino Real Chapter Blog is up and running with a few posts already. We would love reports on activities and nature sightings. Members and friends can send the information (don’t forget pictures) in whatever format works for you to: The blog is at: https://ecrmasternaturalists. blog/ and is also referenced on the front page of our website. Please share with all your Master Naturalist and other nature-loving friends, so we can get the word out about what a fascinating bunch of folks we are! Use Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. to share the link. You can subscribe to the blog using your own email (or follow it if you’re on WordPress). Just look in the margins or at the bottom of a page for the place to click.
