Have you ever wondered why California is such an ecologically diverse place? From the high Sierra peaks to the deep desert basins of Death Valley, the plants, animals, and ecosystems of California arise from the unique geography and geologic history of each region. California has 11 different geomorphic provinces, each with its own distinctive topography, geology, and tectonic origin.
By popular demand, our public vernal pool walks are coming back in 2017! Register soon, tours sold out very quickly last year. We have new activities and surprises for the entire family, so come and learn about the wonders of this fascinating ecosystem!
This month, all donations will buy tools and mobilize volunteers to combat the invasive weeds that threaten to destroy the vernal pools. Your gift will also help share this magical habitat with visitors by creating new signage for our interpretive kiosks. Click here to donate.
Are you interested in environmental protection and advocacy of Sacramento’s vernal pools ecosystems? Do you want to have a direct impact on land-use management? Are you invigorated by creating outdoor education opportunities for children and adults alike? If so, Splash is looking for new volunteers!
