1. INTERPRETIVE HIKE AND INSECT LIGHTING AT CASPERS WILDERNESS PARK

The Santa Ana Natural History Association invites the public to attend an
evening interpretive program at Caspers Wilderness Park on Saturday, July
14, 2007.

You are welcome to join us in a visit of the new Interpretive Center at 4:30
PM. We’ll then gather at the “Old Corral” area (about 1.5 miles inside the
park) at 5:30 for a picnic or pot luck supper, and interpretive walks in the
area. At 7:30 we’ll have a short easy hike looking for insects, spiders and
other night creatures, then we will meet around the insect light and discuss
nocturnal insects and examine the insects attracted to the light. We will
keep the light on until 9:30 to see what insects are in the area.

Bring a flashlight, magnifying glass, chair, drinking water, and a picnic or
supper dish to share. Parking is $5/day.

Caspers Wilderness Park is located on Ortega Highway (Hwy 74), 8 miles from
I-5 and 22 miles from Grand Ave in Lake Elsinore.

If you would like more information on the event or the Santa Ana Mountains
Natural History Association please contact Debra Clarke at 951-736-1811 x
3227.

2. FOREST RESTRICTION LEVEL RAISED TO VERY HIGH DUE TO FIRE DANGER

As most of you know the state is suffering under drought conditions that
have resulted in extreme fire danger in the forests across the state. We
expect the Forest Service to close the forests at any time if the conditions
warrant, or if out of control fires across the state deplete local fire
fighters who will be moved out of our area to control them.

Help to do your part to stop forest fires.
