Museum Field Trip from Desert Floor to Mountain Top

Registration is now open for a San Bernardino County Museum Jolene Redvale, curator of education at the San Bernardino County Museum, will lead a field trip to explore the nature of southern California on Saturday, April 9. The trip will be led by Museum Curator of Education Jolene Redvale.

"We'll romp through the plant communities and ecosystems on the inland area, while learning bits about local history, geology, and anthropology," explained Redvale. "Each southern California plant community has distinct species and combinations. You can see the transitions between habitats if you know what to look for. Plants have very specific adaptations to their specific habitats, including how they respond to events like fire. California is very diverse in plant and animal life, and looking closely at plant communities helps to understand why."

The trip will leave the museum at 8:30 a.m. and return at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $40 per person ($30 for members of the San Bernardino County Museum Association), which includes transportation, snacks, and water; participants should bring their own lunch. Children aged 9 and over are welcomed but must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited and pre-paid reservations are required by April 1.

Registration forms are available at the museum or on-line at "From Desert Floor to Mountain Top" is one of a series of field trips organized by the San Bernardino County Museum Association to offer the opportunity to learn about our region's cultural and natural history accompanied by a museum curator.
