Please join us for a “forest bathing” hike at Palomar Mountain with SCPS chair and nature photographer Alexander S. Kunz in May. Palomar Mountain’s forest offers a special treat at this time of the year: Mountain Dogwood is in bloom, and big, showy white flowers will be swaying in the breeze in the forest.
Our April 2022 activity will take us for a walk in the lovely riparian canyon of the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve in Poway. Located near Lake Poway, this is an easy out and back walk on a dirt road, with the option to get in closer contact with nature on a narrow single track trail that parallels the main road.
This gallery shows a few photos that our members made during the Lake Hodges nature walk, which was our March 2022 outdoor activity (members received a Dropbox file request to send their photos — if you want to add one, check your inbox!;-).
You are invited to join SCPS chair and certified chaparral naturalist Alexander S. Kunz for our March 2022 outdoor activity: a nature walk at Lake Hodges in Rancho Bernardo. Please continue reading for a description, the date and time, and meeting point.
Last Saturday, members of our club went for a desert hike, at Borrego Palm Canyon. We were a small group of only seven people but as it turned out, had more pleasant temperatures in the desert than in San Diego!
Join us for our February 2022 outdoor activity. We’ll go to Anza Borrego Desert State Park for an afternoon hike with our chair Alexander S. Kunz. It has been a pretty dry winter so we’re not expecting flower blooms, but the desert is always an interesting place to photograph and explore, in particular for close-ups, details, abstracts, and also wildlife.
Join us for our first photo activity in 2022! We meet at La Jolla Cove to photograph the nesting Brandt’s cormorants, Brown pelicans in their breeding plumage, and other wildlife that will be nearby, like the Sea lions lounging on the rocks, the Pacific harbor seals at the Children’s Pool (a 15 minute walk from the Cave Store), etc.
Here are photos that participants of our nature walk at Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve made, this past Saturday, November 13. Thanks to all those who came out, despite the toasty weather, and for your positive feedback on the walk!
