  • Brown Bag Lunch Lecture – March 16, 2017

    12:00 PM-4:00 PM
    03-16-2017

    Brown Bag Lunch Lecture – March 16, 2017

    “Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument –
    What the rocks tell us about ecosystem response to past climate change”
    with Kathleen Springer, Geologist – U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)

    Paleowetland deposits comprise the entirety of Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument and entomb the spectacular namesake Pleistocene faunal assemblage. Study of these deposits in detail, reveals that the very springs that were the magnet and water source for animals in an otherwise arid environment, were highly sensitive to past abrupt climate change. This presentation will show that entire ecosystems collapsed repeatedly in response to prolonged drought. How did the animals respond? How will modern desert wetlands respond to current warming climes’?

    Kathleen Springer Biography
    I study geologic deposits associated with desert wetlands, pluvial lakes, and anything else I can get my hands on to query the paleoclimate record of the American Southwest. I was trained as a geologist and paleontologist, with B.S. and M.S. degrees in Geological Sciences from the University of California, Riverside, and spent the first part of my career at the San Bernardino County Museum where I was the Senior Curator of Geological Sciences. Now with the USGS, my research focuses on deciphering paleo-depositional environments of Quaternary localities (paleowetlands and pluvial lakes) throughout the Mojave Desert and southern Great Basin, stressing the application of detailed stratigraphic and chronologic controls. I also use detailed geologic mapping to understand how hydrologic systems in the desert responded to past episodes of climate change and tectonic activity. In addition, I am a lifelong geoscience educator and communicator, specializing in earthquake science messaging by raising awareness of earthquake hazards and risk and promoting natural disaster preparedness, work which continues today.

    Bring your lunch, bring your friends, or just bring yourself to our Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series once a month. Speakers will present topics of special interest for high desert residents. The lectures start at 12:00 p.m. Admission is $ 5 – Free for Members/Sponsors – beverages will be served.

  • Evening With the Cosmos

    7:45 AM-11:00 PM
    03-18-2017

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, March 18. This free public event begins at 7:45 pm and ends around 11:00 pm. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    Late March is great time to view the night sky; eight first magnitude stars and several of the brightest constellations stand out against the rich star fields of the winter Milky Way.

    The Orion Nebula and the Pleiades are in the western sky, and brilliant Jupiter will be well placed for viewing later in the evening east of the constellation Leo the Lion. Look to the northeast to find the Big Dipper.
    Prominent constellations are Gemini (the Twins), Canis Major (the Great Dog), Auriga (the Charioteer), Leo (the Lion), Orion (the Hunter) and Ursa Major (the Great Bear.)

    Volunteers will set up a variety of kinds and sizes of telescopes on the winding sidewalks, and guests are welcome to use them or may bring their own binoculars and scopes as well. The presentation is very casual, so come at any time and leave when you wish. Bring a red flashlight to preserve night vision.

    The campus is always open, so arrive around sunset to allow time to visit other educational attractions before the cosmic tour begins at dark. Dress for unpredictable desert weather and bring snacks, water bottles, and chairs. Children under 16 must be accompanied by adults. No pets, no smoking or alcohol allowed on the STL campus, and visitors must carry out all trash.

    The seasonal sky is very unpredictable and a viewing event may have to be delayed, rescheduled, or cancelled due to cloudiness, rain, or excessive wind. Check Sky’s The Limit Facebook Page or follow @STL29Palms to learn the latest status of an event, or call Steve at (760) 401-3004.

    For more information and to see photos taken through STL’s 14” Celestron Schmidt–Cassegrain telescope, visit the STL web site at www.skysthelimit29.org. STL is an affiliate of the Basin Wide Foundation, a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Donations to support Sky’s The Limit’s educational programs are gratefully accepted.

  • Legal Access to Medical Marijuana for Seniors

    10:00 AM-2:00 PM
    03-25-2017

    Everyone is invited and welcome to
    attend and participate in a special community meeting, on

    Legal Access to Medical Marijuana for Seniors
    With guest speaker Lanny Swerdlow, R.N.

    Saturday, March 25, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at the
    Wonder Valley Community Center
    80526½ Amboy Road, Wonder Valley CA 92277

    Learn how medical marijuana may provide safe, effective therapeutic relief for pain, insomnia, and depression, and why it is tailor-made for the ailments of advancing years.

    Information will be provided on:
    – the current legal status of marijuana
    – how to become a medical marijuana patient
    – where to obtain medical marijuana, and
    – how to grow your own

    There will be a Q&A after the presentation.

    Lanny Swerdlow, RN LNC, has advocated for the health and medical uses of marijuana since 1995. He founded the Inland Empire’s first medical marijuana doctor’s office and one of the first medical marijuana dispensaries. He has played a major role in advancing access to marijuana in the IE including working on Prop. 64.

    This meeting was the result of a discussion regarding medical marijuana at the January 2017 Wonder Valley Community meeting. The Community wanted to hear more about the subject.
