TA Tidbits #54-TA Reaching Out

Highlands Lifelong Learning Group Tours Tortolita Preserve With Dave Barker (TA Board Member-back left)


Tortolita Alliance (TA) is fulfilling its strategic communication and environmental education goals with several events:

Highlands Lifelong Learning Group (2/28/24)

The Highlands Lifelong Learning group toured the eastern panhandle of the Tortolita Preserve (TP).  Board member Dave Barker led the group, and touched upon the history of TP, the creation of TA, and some basic info on the local plants and animals.  Some of the group walked the upper one mile loop from the Highlands gate access, and a few hardy souls enjoyed a three mile loop including the cutoff trail bench. Tentative plans were made to host this group at a later date, likely starting from the new Moore Trailhead.
