Adobe Springs Interpretive Program

April 7, 2022

For the 5th year, ALPS hosted local 3rd grade students for docent-led field trips which cover subjects required for their local history education.  San Gabriel Elementary attended on April 6 and San Benito Elementary on April 7.  Between the two schools we hosted a total of 130 students.

ALPS coordinates the docent led field trip to cover three local history topics:  Native Americans who lived in the area for centuries; the Anza Expedition that camped nearby on the night of March 4, 1776; and the Estrada Adobe built in 1812 as an outpost to Mission San Miguel.  The common element connecting all three is the continuous running spring water.

This year we had an additional station hosted by the Morro Caoast Audobon Society which focused on the different birds that make Adobe Springs Nature Preserve their home.

A special thanks to the volunteers from Earth Inspired who helped coordinate and plan the field trips.  Another big thank you to all the volunteers that helped make the field trips a great success!
