Upper Campus FOREST WALKS: Spring 2015

Join us for walks and adventures this spring, through a very special forest above UC Santa Cruz that is threatened by UCSC's large-scale development plans. To learn more about efforts to protect this treasured place, visit http://saveuppercampus.org/

Walks are free and hosted by volunteers, with no university sponsorship.

As the weather moves between sunshine and rain, we find ourselves moving between the realms of the forest, chaparral, creek and meadow. The new sprout, shoot and catkin come and tell us of a time of sweet smelling air, filled with new growth.

- - - 1st 3 of 16 Walks of the WALK SCHEDULE: - - -

Saturday, April 11th: Song & Silence
w/ River—2pm @ North Remote, A walk for listening to the sounds of the forest, and for singing and sharing songs. Rain cancels.

Sunday, April 12th: Wild Plant Medicine Herbal Teas Walkw/ Clarice—2pm @ N. Remote, On this walk we will learn about the delicious and medicinal properties of some of the plants native to upper campus and make some awesome hot herbal teas! Bring a cup or jar! Rain cancels.

Sunday, April 19th: Wildflowers and Morew/ Jesse—1pm @ North Remote, Lets enjoy the spring wildflowers and explore how they relate to local ecology by observing the soils they grow on, insects that pollinate them, and how they're influenced by human impacts. Rain does not cancel.

If you'd like a PDF of the Forest Walks schedule poster, for printing, just email forestkeepers@riseup.net and ask the Forest Keepers for it.

SAVE UPPER CAMPUS!
We do these walks so that more people will know and care for the beautiful and  irreplaceable things that could be lost to future UCSC development projects.

At SubRosa Thurs. 3/26-Thurs. 4/2!

-Thu, March 26, 5:00-7:30pm:  Anti-racism working group

-Sun, March 29, 3:30pm:  Vocal Playshop Forest Edition (meet at SubRosa to carpool)

and later that Sun evening at 7-8:30pm:  Info Night for Alix Tichelman.  The presentation will cover the case against Alix Tichelman and explain the various players involved in keeping her locked up in the Santa Cruz County Jail. Alix Tichelman was arrested on July 4th, 2014, by the Santa Cruz Police Department in connection with the death of a man named Forrest Hayes, a Google executive. Six months prior to her arrest, Tichelman and Forrest Hayes decided to meet up on the night of November 22nd, 2013 for a rendezvous on his yacht in the Santa Cruz harbor. After asking Tichelman to inject him with heroin, Hayes went into cardiac arrest and passed out. Tichelman left the yacht and was ultimately captured. She is now being demonized as a hardened seductress and killer by the SCPD and the media. With all of the negative publicity surrounding her name, we hope to shed a little more light on the situation. Please come to our event and get informed about the case.
