Trip Report: Landels-Hill Big Creek Reserve

Ken Feingold, our TripMaster, has put together this summer's trip. The destination is the pristine beauty of one of UCSC's Natural Preserves in Big Sur. This trip can take 28 - 30 people. The dates are July 14th - 16th (Fri - Sun). People can carpool up or fly, but we will need to be there by 7pm. No kids under 12, please (because it is a preserve). Priority space goes to Alums, so please bring your family or 1 friend only. We will be camping out in tents. There will be picnic tables, and outdoor toilets, but no showers. We will bring lunch for Saturday, and breakfast for both Sat and Sun. We may go out for dinner in Carmel one night or have a BBQ. Maybe we will also go to Esalen for hottubbing. Figure on $25 for food (non-alcholic drinks included - bring your own wine). The total cost will be $75. Food is included and the remainder $50 is the suggested contribution to the Conservancy. We will be able to assist in research (counting butterflies?) and take guided Nature Hikes. We will need to leave by 4pm on Sunday. What: Big Sur Camp Out at Landels-Hill Big Creek Reserve When: July 14th @ 7pm until July 16th @ 4pm Where to Meet: At the Preserve Cost: $75 for the weekend - Ken will get more Big Sur details

Rob Barandas in the Alumni office is working on getting the pages moved to the new alumni web site. The new alumni website will be at: http://www.alumni.ucsc.edu/ Fran will - mail Allison Garcia a list of the current local Alumni members. - mail a notice about our upcoming events to our current local Alumni members. - contact the Media Slugs about upcoming events
