Fish Tour: Seining in the San Lorenzo River
Observe how seining is conducted while learning about steelhead biology and lagoon dynamics.
09/23/2019 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Join us on your lunch break to learn more about steelhead and other fish in the San Lorenzo River! Staff from the Coastal Watershed Council, the City of Santa Cruz Water Department Watershed Section and Hagar Environmental Science will be leading a tour along the Santa Cruz Riverwalk to observe and discuss fish monitoring activities on September 23rd from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. 

 

Throughout the summer the City of Santa Cruz Water Department routinely conducts seining along the lower San Lorenzo River to determine the size of steelhead populations, fish growth and age and size class compositions of the lagoon steelhead population. Seining is a method of monitoring fish using a seine, a net that hangs vertically in the water and is deployed from shore or by boat. During routine seining events, crews work carefully to catch, measure, count and then release steelhead.

 

The City of Santa Cruz invites fish enthusiasts to come take a closer look into this fish monitoring. During this session, attendees will be able to observe how seining is conducted while learning about steelhead biology and lagoon dynamics. Fish biologists conducting the seining may also join the observers to describe the process and answer questions about their findings. However, their main priority is fish safety and survival and they will break to meet with the group only as their monitoring protocol allows. 

 

We hope you will join us for a fish-filled afternoon! This tour is limited to 30 participants. Please RSVP below to reserve your spot on the tour. We will meet at 12:00 p.m. on the west side of the San Lorenzo River Trestle Bridge and may move down to Main Beach or up the Riverwalk depending on where the crews are working.

Kids2Parks is an innovative park-equity program to bring students from Title 1 schools on State Parks field trips. The program, a partnership between California State Parks and Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks, increases the number of students who have visited a state park or beach by reducing barriers to access.

 

The program offers field trips to select Title 1 schools in Santa Cruz, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Find out if your school is eligible for free bus transportation to a field trip!

 

Applications are accepted once a year for transportation. Teachers may apply for as many field trips as they would like (so long as the school is eligible) but will only be selected for one trip. Field trips will be scheduled by State Parks staff for the 2019/20 academic year based on availability. Teachers/schools are responsible for arranging transportation to the park. Funding is available to cover transportation costs.

 

The 2019/20 Kids2Parks application window will be April 1-30. Online registration opens at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 1. Teachers will receive a response from State Parks about the status of their application by May 15.

MAH
There's an invisible epidemic on the rise in Santa Cruz County's senior population. And it's something you may have felt before,
Date: Every day (Apr 5-Sep 22)


MAH LONELINESS EXHIBITION -- BY AND ABOUT SENIORS -- OPENS APRIL 5th

There's an invisible epidemic on the rise in Santa Cruz County's senior population. And it's something you may have felt before, too.

 

Loneliness and social isolation affect 1 in 3 seniors in Santa Cruz County. Many seniors contact just one person a week; some said they see a visitor less than once a month. Because of this, people 60 years and older who reported feeling lonely saw a 45% increase in risk of death.*

 

Opening April 5th, "We're Still Here: Stories of Seniors and Social Isolation" sheds light on this local crisis and gives visitors the tools to help. It also shares solutions to loneliness from different cultures and families around the world. It's not your typical exhibition; over 180 seniors, advocates, and organizations created this show themselves in partnership with the MAH.

 

"When we learned about this growing issue affecting senior health and well being, we felt the MAH was in a unique position to address it," said Stacey Marie Garcia, Director of Community Engagement at the MAH. "We're all about creating connections and hope to ignite stronger links between seniors and the larger Santa Cruz County community through this exhibition."

 

(0 A 0 March) Loneliness.jpgTheir Story, Told Their Way

To tell this story, the MAH used a simple- but non-traditional- strategy: give seniors the power to design this exhibition themselves. For many museums, this is not how exhibition design operates. Typically, there is strict curatorial control over decisions big and small, from the themes of the exhibition to the title itself.

 

That's not how it worked for "We're Still Here: Stories of Seniors and Social Isolation" (a title brainstormed by the group.) From the beginning, it was a fiercely democratic process. Last September, the MAH reinvigorated the Creative Community Committee (C3), an action-oriented gathering of 186 seniors, advocates, and organizations that live this issue every day. Over the course of seven months, the group brainstormed big ideas, worked with local artists to creatively articulate the issues, and talked about ways the public can help. This was the second incarnation of C3 for this purpose; the first was in the 2017 exhibition Lost Childhoods: Voices of Santa Cruz County Foster Youth and the Foster Youth Museum which gathered 100 voices from the local foster youth community for an exhibition of similar structure.

 

Among the big themes of "We're Still Here", one thread is clear: Santa Cruz needs to know about this problem, step into what it feels like, and even take actions to help.


Transforming Empathy into Action

With a topic so heavy, it can be easy to walk away feeling disempowered and sad. That's why We're Still Here dedicates an entire wall to actions the public can take to help.

 

Drive a senior to go grocery shopping. Translate written materials into Spanish for a monolingual elder. Donate an iPod for entertainment. If you have a special skill, offer it. If you just want to give money, you could do that too. These actions were developed with the dozens of organizations participating in C3, among them The County of Santa Cruz Human Services Department, Seniors Council of Santa Cruz County, and Community Bridges.

 

Visitors can explore 45 actions on a wall of business cards that contain ways to follow up and contact information. If one action resonates with them, they can take a card home to complete it.


Telling Stories Through Art

To help translate senior stories, the MAH connected the C3 group with five local artists: Wes Modes, Gina Orlando, Ry Faraola, Cid Pearlman, and The Pajaro Valley Quilt Association. They built relationships with the seniors, understood their stories, and transformed them into visual, audio, and performative experiences for the exhibition.

 

Wes Modes met with seniors to create 'Words of Wisdom', an audio piece recording their stories. Visitors can hear twenty different stories by picking up a telephone and listening in.

 

Gina Orlando empowered seniors with photography. She gave each senior a camera and worked with them one-on-one to capture words and images from their daily lives.

 

Choreographer Cid Pearlman asked seniors to describe what social isolation looked like to them. Inspired by their imagery, she created three physical rooms in the exhibition: a bedroom, a kitchen, and a "room of the mind." During this exhibition, dancers will be periodically activating these rooms with movement.

 

We're Still Here opens April 5th through September 22nd, 2019. This exhibition was made possible by the following sponsors: Visiting Angels, Care from the Heart, County of Santa Cruz Human Services Department, Community Foundation Santa Cruz, Arts Council Santa Cruz County, Hospice of Santa Cruz County, Bay Photo, Canyon View Capital, Anonymous, In Memory of Al Killingsworth, and MAH Members.
