Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy Events May 2021

     

Special Events: 

Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy is slowly beginning to allow participants to join its monthly outside activities. This is exciting because last year we were unable to enjoy outdoor volunteer opportunities that the Conservancy offers.

City Nature Challenge will take place from April 30 through May 3, 2021, with bioblitz fun as you help document wildlife on your smart phone in your area. Whether it be your backyard, or in one of the nature preserves, this is a way for the community to work together and find and document nature in the area. The event is designed to connect people and communities with nature, and collaborate with citizen and community scientists around the work documenting the biodiversity of our planet. This is an easy to do challenge. The Conservancy has all of the instructions, resources and activities for you; please visit www.pvplc.org/calendar/citynaturechallenge.

Q & A with Author Doug Tallamy will take place on Saturday, May 1st, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. You will join executive director Adrienne Mohan for a live zoom Q & A with Doug Tallamy, bestselling author of “Nature’s Best Hope,” who will answer your questions about how to help save the planet by adding native species to your backyard. For more information and the Zoom link go to https://pvplc.org/calendar.  You can also have Doug sign a Mother’s Day gift of this best selling book “Nature’s Best Hope.”  You can buy copies of the book by going to https://plplc.org/event/earthday.
