Even though the temperatures were high this sunny Sunday morning, so was the enthusiasm for learning about the wonders of the earth. On this interactive Geology Walk on the Conservancy trails we stopped along the way at some outdoor hands-on stations where we learned about the rocks, minerals and fossils of Orange County. Everyone got to dig for their own shark tooth, participate in a scavenger hunt, make an egg carton rock collection to take home, and learn about soil types and how the local plants and animals use them. We even saw a huge velvet ant making tracks (look close at the photo) and saw some spectacular bobcat, coyote, deer and quail tracks. Getting in touch with the wildlands was a lot of fun.
