Mountain Light Photo Exhibit and Sale @ Anthony C. Beilenson Interagency Visitor Center Tickets
Mar 2 @ 9:00 am – Mar 30 @ 5:00 pm
Mountain Light Photo Exhibit and Sale @ Anthony C. Beilenson Interagency Visitor Center | Calabasas | California | United States

Don Holtz’s exhibit Mountain Light is a celebration and show of gratitude for the Santa Monica Mountains and the peace of mind they’ve brought him over the last thirteen years of living among them. His goal with this portfolio is quite simple: through these photographs, he wants to share with others the same stunning stillness he felt when making them.

A portion of the funds from art sales will be used to further the arts in Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

This is a free event with free parking.

Bring your binoculars, bird guide, and/or camera and join us for an easy bird walk around the grounds of King Gillette Ranch. This area attracts many songbirds, water birds, woodpeckers, and raptors and we are always treated to something interesting. Kids are welcome and the walk is less than a mile at a very easy pace as we stop often to observe the birds.

 

We leave promptly at 8:30 from the flagpole. Heavy rain cancels (but I will be there for anyone who wants to walk in it!). See you there!

Crayfish Removal Open House @ Medea Creek Tickets
Mar 3 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Crayfish Removal Open House @ Medea Creek | Oak Park | California | United States

Come help us remove crayfish from your creeks and streams! Crayfish are a non-native species to California, and they’re considered invasive because they cause quite a bit of damage to the aquatic ecosystems. They prey on native species, reduce water quality, and cause problems with creek bed erosion. We need your help in trapping and removing the crayfish as well as picking up trash along the stream.

PARKING: You are free to park anywhere within reason. This is near a residential area, so please be respectful of the folks who live there!

Our staff will meet volunteers on the Medea Creek Trail, which starts at the corner of Conifer Street and Parkview Drive.

This event is great fun for volunteers of all ages! Volunteers 12 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring the Parental Consent Form with a parent or guardian’s signature if the parent or guardian is not attending.

Registration is free, but required. Registered volunteers will receive an email confirmation with more details.

Have more questions? Contact us at volunteer@mountainstrust.org or call MRT Monday through Friday 8am to 4:30pm at (818) 591-1701.
