    LB Nature Center Seeks Volunteers for Training as Part of "Sharing Nature in the City" Program

    Nature Ctr 2(July 19, 2002) -- The LB Nature Center is seeking volunteers for training as part of a "Sharing Nature in the City" program.

    LB's Dept. of Parks, Recreation Marine says a training course, conducted by biologist Claudia Freitas and naturalist staff, will teach participants about "the plants and animals that use the 100-acre sanctuary and find their way into community neighborhoods and parks."

    Then, for four hours each month on weekdays or weekends, "the volunteers will set up an information table along the trails of the Nature Center. Relaxing in the Centerís natural beauty and splendor, volunteers will share their newfound knowledge of the turtles, birds, skunks, dragonflies and wildflowers that make the Center their home with visitors."

    The training course (comprising 24 hours) includes lectures, fieldwork and hands-on discovery on Wednesdays Sept. 4, 11, 18 and 25 (6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) and Saturdays Sept. 7, 14, 21 and 28 (8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.)

    To register or to have questions answered, Parks and Rec says call Helen at (562) 570-1747.

    The El Dorado Nature Center is at 7550 E. Spring St. in ELB.
