Great News About Parking!
Thanks to Bill Klansnic, starting with the April meeting there will be more parking available for VGCLJ members and their guests!
-You can now enter the parking garage from either entrance.
-Be sure to take the parking ticket with you. There will be two validation machines for your convenience.
NOTE: Don’t place your ticket next to your cell phone because doing so sometimes deactivates the strip.

If so, you can be among 1,000 volunteers who will collect 18,000 samples of soil and aquatic sediment from across the state through a new University of California program called CALeDNA that intends to revolutionize conservation in California by the end of this year.
Volunteers who sign up on the program’s website will receive training, a sample collection kit and a phone app to guide them. The program’s scientific team hopes about half of the participants will deploy the kits on hikes in any of the 39 UC natural reserves, and that the other half will sample broadly across California’s stunning and fragile ecosystems. CALeDNA will hold several “BioBlitz” events; the first will be held on Feb. 8 at Northern California’s Pillar Point near Half Moon Bay.”
