The San Elijo Conservancy has a new lineup of exciting summer tours and events.

Saturday, June 24
Biomimicry Nature Tour
10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
An invention as simple as Velcro mimics the interlocking hooks in common burrs that attach to our hiking shoes. That’s copying nature’s best designs, the focus of a tour designed to open the ways we think inside nature’s strategies and patterns. Guest expert Jacques Chirazi with Biomimicry San Diego will lead the nature walk with hands-on activities including a scavenger hunt, a blindfold exercise to enhance other senses, and nature drawing.
Members: $5 | Public: $10

Sunday, July 2 and Sunday, Aug. 6
Our Changing Climate Family Fun Days
11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Kid-friendly and interactive experiences make learning about nature more meaningful. Our Changing Climate shines a spotlight on wildlife corridors in July and in climate solutions in August, presented by conservancy naturalists and county rangers at the Nature Center.
