  • The heart of the matter is learning

    Natural Perspectives: Mea culpa for last column
    I made a goof in my last column about the Bolsa Chica Land Trust's plan for the mesa. The error is mine, not Vic's. I said the Land Trust was going to excavate no deeper than 8 feet to bury its 2,825-gallon water tanks in the ground. Actually, the tanks...

    In The Pipeline: Museum gets down to the bones

  • Natural Perspectives: A yard certified for birds, bees and butterflies

    One of the pleasures that Vic and I enjoy at our home is feeding birds and providing a place where bees and butterflies are welcome. As wild areas shrink due to development, habitat for birds and other wildlife disappears. We do what we can in our yard to...
  • Natural Perspectives: Preparing for 'coronal mass ejection'

    To play on a phrase from "Star Trek": "Space. The final weather frontier." I just learned that space weather is something that exists. I asked Vic if he had ever heard of space weather, and he said no. We knew about solar wind, which is a steady...

    In The Pipeline: The outdoors is his classroom
    About two years ago, I experienced my first grunion run — a late-night visit to the beach in the hopes of seeing mobs of the elusive fish, the grunion, appear to perform their mysterious spawning rituals. I'd heard many stories of people trying for...

    In the Pipeline: The daughter is in
    I had the distinct pleasure of watching Nina Kar in action recently at St. Joseph Hospital of Orange. The tennis-playing Mater Dei High School sophomore, born and raised in Huntington Beach, has so far worked hundreds of volunteer service hours as a...

    'We're letting him do his own thing'
    When a dolphin swam into Bolsa Chica sometime before noon Friday, the wetlands got a surprise visitor. Now, they may have an unintended mascot. Five days and many media stories later, the dolphin still hadn't left the water near Warner Avenue and Pacific...
  • Natural Perspectives: Our trek to the lek

    Natural Perspectives: Our trek to the lek
    Vic and I were in the Eastern Sierras a few weeks ago. He was leading an Audubon birding trip, primarily to see greater sage-grouse on their courtship display grounds, which are called leks. The lek is just north of Crowley Lake, a few miles outside...
