Join us for a leisurely walk from Pillar Point Harbor to Fitzgerald Marine Reserve where we stop to see colorful boats in the harbor, wetlands, rugged coastline, harbor seals and other wildlife and a century-old Monterey cypress grove. We break for a social picnic lunch and chocolate tasting at the marine reserve before visiting the tidepools. Last but not least, we head to Half Moon Bay to learn about glass blowing and pick pumpkins for Halloween.
More than half the water consumed by a Santa Clara County household is used in the yard. This workshop will cover many different ways to reduce water use in your yard, pool and garden. Also, we will provide details about how to apply for and successfully complete a Valley Water landscape conversion rebate project and share landscape design templates. This program is in partnership with Valley Water.
This lecture explores how the inherently narrative character of history allows for cinematic representation to play such a dominant role in how history is known. Questions to be raised include what role film plays in our engagement with history, how movies both illuminate and distort our knowledge of the past and why increased access to media content via Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services warrants greater media literacy to decode the making of the story of our past. This lecture is presented by Falk Cammin, Humanities Mellon Scholars Program Director of Foothill College.Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay.
