Keep up with our amazing naturalist and friend of the garden, Doc “Jim” Hale by checking out his web site. Periodically it will have updates with news and the latest on Jim’s condition. The site also has a link to a fundraising effort set up by some of his friends to help with his ongoing medical expenses.
I hope you will consider sending the link below to any of your friends who also know Jim:

On Sunday, April 6 from 9:30am to 2:00pm, celebrate Spring at this Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center-sponsored fundraising walk.
Explore Mount Diablo with new eyes on this natural and cultural history walk with local wildlife biologist and naturalist Doc Hale, as he interprets the fire ecology of the recent Clayton Burn, wildlife, geology, wildflowers, and the material culture of the Native Americans, their useful, edible, and medicinal plants. We will visit bedrock milling stations, as well as a village site and pictograph site.
Hiking level is easy. Bring lunch and liquids. We will carpool from the garden at 8:30am or meet at 9:30am at the John Muir Picnic Area just below the summit of Mount Diablo.
Cost: $10/individual; $20/family tax-deductible donation to Lafayette Community Garden to support our education programs.*
*A park entrance fee applies at both the north and south entrances, and is separate from the cost of the class.
