Poppies near the Vernal Pools

In this episode Dave and I take a scenic stroll through a magnificent 7,000 acre ecological preserve and explore its rare Vernal Pools, the Genesis of life for many endangered species. We also check out the small Juan Moreno Adobe, the oldest building in Riverside County. Along the way we enjoy a warm spring day and sprawling views over a grass covered mesa. We also check out some of the last remaining Englemann Oaks in Southern California; All coming up in this episode of Anthony’s Audio Journal, The Santa Rosa Preserve.
