Program:   “The History and Legacy of the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve” will be given by reserve interpreter Rob Hicks.  
You will learn all about this 7,500 acre reserve of relatively undisturbed oak woodland, chaparral, and native grassland.
The reserve, located right in our own backyard, provides habitat for many native species,
as well as a corridor for movement of deer and mountain lion.

Rob Hicks has been sharing natural and cultural history as an interprete for nearly 30 years.
As an Interpretive Ranger with the National Park Service, he worked and presented programs
at Redwood, Everglades and Great Basin 
National Parks.
Whether hiking through forests, slogging through
swamps, or spelunking through caves,
Rob has always enjoyed helping 
people discover the fascinating and important stories of a place.

Also at the meeting, the club will present the new projects and events scheduled for the year ahead.  
We have exciting plans for community service, youth gardening, educational and creative workshops, trips and tours,
and special events such as our annual Flower Show.  
We are looking forward to these upcoming activities and invite you to participate in them with us.
