Spring Hike ~ Monrovia Canyon

IMG_1462

A group of iLEAD Exploration learners recently went on a beautiful hike with Joel Robinson from Naturalist For You. Joel pointed out a variety of plants (many of them edible), birds and animals along the way to a waterfall in Monrovia Canyon. They ate miners lettuce and chickweed, and learned how mugwort can help alleviate a headache and itching from poison oak. They observed velvet tree ants, western fence lizards, and even learned a few words from the Tongva language. The highlight of the adventure was toward the end of the hike when they saw a mama bear and her three baby cubs!
