On Solstice, We Hosted the Art + Nature Hike Featuring our New Lake Drive Trail

Your gifts help us to open the outdoors with new experiences, like our recent Art + Nature event at the new Lake Drive Trail. On June 21 we celebrated summer solstice with Canyon Crest Academy art students, their families and friends + local community members with tastes of the trails refreshments, a guided nature tour and poetry reading in our first official trail event.

Nature Collective board member Michael Lea and Board President Nicolle Selby-Thomas and her dog KJ joined us at the Art + Nature Solstice Hike.

This trail features artistic interpretations of native plants and animals found in the area. The pieces were designed and painted on storm drain covers by Canyon Crest Academy Envision Visual Arts students.  

Opening Lake Drive Trail was a two-year collaborative effort by many supporters.

A Special Thank you to:

The Anthony Cerami + Ann Dunne Foundation for World Peace, our supportive donor who made the 77-acre land acquisition possible;
CALFIRE Conservation Corps who cleared invasive plants for fire prevention safety, American Conservation Experience, Canyon Crest Academy Envision Program student artists, and our incredible community habitat restoration volunteers!

Thanks to your incredible support, outdoor access increases with all ages adventures, like Art + Nature, with more experiences to be announced!
