The Interpretive Center
Lately, after going to Ms. Paula's for art, we've been stopping by the Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center. It is a really neat nature center located in the Newport Beach Upper Bay area. The bay is just gorgeous and it's fun to hike around and spot animals, as well as go inside the center and learn about how ecosystems work, life in a salt marsh, and other facts. You can also go on the top of the building and look through some cool binoculars for free! When we were hiking around, we saw some bunnies, a prairie dog, butterflies, lizards, a hawk, and a coyote! The Interpretive Center is an adventure that is well worth it!
On a side note, my Ecommercial is going to be screened there, along with the 14 other finalists in the LEAF (Leaders of Environmental Action Films) contest on Sunday for their Earth Day Celebration! Stop by if you're in the neighborhood! :)
Can you "I-Spy" the coyote?

We were excited to see this photo of a burrowing owl because we are reading the book Hoot by Carl Hiaasen (we highly recommend this novel)!
