Uvas Canyon Waterfall Fieldtrip
March 26 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join the Nature Journal Club on a hike up Swanson Creek near Morgan Hill to a wonderful series of waterfalls in a lush wooded canyon. We will make sketches and field notes of our discoveries in the forest as we go, learing how to make an “event map” that records the moments of the day in a delightful geographic context.
