Spotlight on Practical Resources
UC California Naturalist Distance Learning Resources
Most people don't automatically seek online resources when they want to deepen their naturalist practice and knowledge. However, increasingly many of the tools of modern naturalists are online. In response to recent shelter-in-place orders and an increasing demand for online and hybrid-delivery courses in general, UC California Naturalist is curating a list of online resources for quality California-focused natural history education . Find web-cams, identification guides, science activities that kids and families can do at home, lesson plans, climate change data and tools, and more, including community science projects where you can participate in the research. Grab your computer (or phone) and start exploring!
Notes from the Field
Urban farms, food safety and food system resilience during COVID-19
As our world grapples with the containment of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), essential services including food provisioning remain vital to the health and well-being of our communities. Yet, many small farms are struggling as they face rapid decline in sales as restaurants, schools and other farm-to-institutions programs close. Many urban farms and community gardens who share the mission of providing fresh, health and affordable food to some of our most vulnerable community members are trying to decide whether and how their operations can stay open .
