Monterey Bay Birding Festival
Call for Volunteers
Date: Every day (Apr 28-Oct 2)


The 2016 Monterey Bay Birding Festival, taking place September 23 - 25, 2016, will offer exciting new field trips, workshops, speakers, youth, and community events. The Festival's energetic Planning Committee has already hit the ground running to make this the best festival yet!

 

Many dedicated volunteers and docents help with the festival each year. Once again, they need your help with a diverse set of volunteer opportunities. In particular, they have three important coordinator positions that need a leader to participate in the advance festival planning, including Vendor Coordinator, Facilities Coordinator, and Co-Festival Director.

 

Detailed information for each of these positions is available so if you are interested in one of these or any other position, please send an email to montereybaybirdingfestival@gmail.com. It might seem daunting, but don't worry because you'll be working with a seasoned group of festival coordinators who will help make your area of responsibility a success. For more information about the Monterey Bay Birding Festival please visit the website at http://montereybaybirding.org/. Thank you!

Loch Lomond Lake
Visit Loch Lomond Lake and go fishing or hike or picnic!
Date: Every day (Mar 1-Sep 30) from 6:00am to 8:00pm


After much anticipation, DFW came by on Friday and stocked the Loch with 2,000 lbs of trout (approximately 2,000 fish). This is the first time we've been stocked since the Loch was closed for the drought. Now is a great time to visit, as visitation is low early in the week and the fish are biting!

 

Loch Lomond Lake is nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains in the heart of Lompico and comprises an 87-acre lake stocked with Trout, Bluegills and Largemouth Bass. Twelve miles of trails wind their way across the woods and along two miles of lakeshore. One spectacular five mile loop goes along the lake to Deer Flat and to Highland Trail and up to the ridge where the view is worth every step. Fishing is always an option; just bring your pole. This 180 acres of recreation area offers picnic tables, a children's playground, nature center, interpretive walks with rangers and a lake side store where you can rent an electric or row boat, as well as pick up bait, tackle, fishing licenses, hot and cold drinks, and snacks.

Special Instructions: Call for hours

Dali17 Museum is Open

(A July) Dali_TimeSlithering.jpgDali17 Museum will open to the public on Friday, July 8 at 10am!

 

The new museum is a permanent exhibition of original etchings, mixed media, lithographs, and rare sculptures by one of the twentieth century's most celebrated surrealist artists, Salvador Dali.

 

This is the first permanent Dali exhibition on the West Coast and the second largest private collection in the United States. Previously, this collection has only been exhibited in Spain and Belgium.

 

will feature over 300 originals. Did you know that Monterey was the only place in the United States where Dali lived and worked? The exhibition will reintroduce Dali’s local history and will be the only museum to showcase photographs from Dali’s fundraiser Surrealistic Night at Del Monte.

 

(A July) Dali.jpgMonterey was the only place in the United States where Dali lived and worked. While the Nazis stormed across Europe, Dali and his wife Gala fled to the U.S. and in July 1941 found refuge at the Hotel Del Monte. While living in the Monterey area, he was heavily involved with the arts. Dali exhibited vintage sourced photographs as an early member of the Carmel Art Association and every May he participated as a juror for the local high school art competition.
