Cachuma Lake Nature Center to Present ‘Saving Wildlife International’ Program

Saturday's event is free, with the Junior Rangers Program and a used-book sale also planned

A presentation of native wildlife, “Saving Wildlife International,” will be hosted by the Cachuma Lake Nature Center from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Experts will show off the animals at close range and explain their habits and habitats.

Families are urged to bring folding chairs or a blanket to the free event on the lawn at the center, 2265 Highway 154 at Cachuma Lake County Park. Please do not bring pets.

After the program and every Saturday at 12:30 p.m., the Junior Rangers Program will be offered to children from age 3 or older. Those younger than 10 must be accompanied by an adult.  Pick up a bag of litter as your first assignment before attending the event. The cost of participation is $2.

A used-book sale, “Hooked On Books,” will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. featuring hundreds of titles, puzzles, CDs, etc.

The Nature Center, which offers exhibits focused on the watershed of the upper Santa Ynez River, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays.

The Cachuma Lake Nature Center is a nonprofit organization operated almost entirely by volunteers. For more information, call 805.693.0691.

A park entry fee of $10 will be charged at the gate.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
