Nature Knowledge Workshop highlights

Nature Knowledge Workshop
For 43 years the Natural Science Section has sponsored this annual weekend workshop.

Enjoy a weekend of nature discovery in the San Bernardino Mountains. From our streamside camp accommodations, we’ll explore our natural surroundings on easy guided walks or moderate hikes led by our professional naturalists. They will also share their expertise in a variety of natural history topics such as reptile, bird, plant, mammal, insect, Native American, and earth science studies through hands on and special interest workshops.

Location: A streamside camp in the San Bernardino Mountains near Barton Flats

Dates: June 2015; Friday evening through Sunday afternoon
