This year’s California Wildlife Day (CWD), held on March 26 at Palo Corona Regional Park in Carmel, returned fully in person after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. The event, co-sponsored by the Carmel River Watershed Conservancy (CRWC) and Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District (MPRPD), drew over 1,000 attendees throughout the day.
The event featured indoor and outdoor activities, including remarks by local political leaders, a blessing from Linda Yamane, over 25 exhibitors, activities and nature walks for children and adults, student art and science projects, and panels featuring expert speakers on the topics of our relationship to watersheds and the intersection between wildlife and humans in the wildland urban interface. CRWC is deeply grateful to all who volunteered their time to make the event’s content and logistics a success.
