BOOKS UNDER THE BOWER

Monthly Book Club at China Camp State Park

  July’s selection:

The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions”

  by David Quammen

“The Song of the Dodo, is a brilliant, stirring work, breathtaking in its scope, far-reaching in its message… In The Song of the Dodo, we follow Quammen’s keen intellect through the ideas, theories, and experiments of prominent naturalists of the last two centuries. We trail after him as he travels the world, tracking the subject of island biogeography, which encompasses nothing less than the study of the origin and extinction of all species. Islands are where species most commonly go extinct — and because, as Quammen points out, we live in an age when all of Earth’s landscapes are being chopped into island-like fragments by human activity.

Through his eyes, we glimpse the nature of evolution and extinction, and in so doing come to understand the monumental diversity of our planet, and the importance of preserving its wild landscapes, animals, and plants. “

Park Champions Work Morning

July 28 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Summer is here and guests are coming from all over to camp, hike, and bike China Camp!  Let’s meet all of our visitors with a sharp and spiffy looking park.  The historic shrimping village  is always in need of love and care, and we are just the ones to do it right.  This love and care will be in the form of removing unwanted vegetation around the historic buildings and repairing fencing and trail tread on the Village feeder trail.

Is this a family workday event?  Of course, but volunteers must be a minimum of 14 years of age.  Lunch will be provided.  Limited free camping will be available for registered volunteers.

To sign up, please go to the CalParks website and look on the calendar for the link to register.   A few days prior to the event, registrants will receive an email from CSPF with information on where to meet, what to bring, what to wear, and other important details for that day.
