Like humans, Mallards have different moods, temperaments, and devotion to their young. With this said, it is difficult for a duckling to become a juvenile. Naturalists, Jun Saito and Tracy Drake will present Jun's research about the Mallard families of Madrona from 2014 - 2016. Jun has spent several years tracking each family from discovery day - the day he first noticed the family off nest, to flight day, when the young left Madrona in the summer. During the program, Jun and Tracy will present data, tell stories, share photos and videos and as a bonus, discuss other bird and mammal families that were observed during the study. Come and join us, socialize with friends. Open to the public. Light refreshments are provided. Free!. For more information please contact the Madrona Marsh Nature Center at 310-782-3989.

There is so much to learn about the Sun. It warms our seas, generates weather patterns, and gives off energy to growing plants that provide the food and oxygen needed for all life. Besides providing light and heat, it generates space weather in our outer atmosphere, notably solar flares ( a sudden, rapid and intense variation in brightness), creating a brief eruption of intense high-energy radiation from the sun’s surface (sunspots). These can cause electromagnetic disturbances on the earth. Learn how to interpret the sun’s solar flares and prominences, as well as learn about their impact on Earth with Paul Livio, while viewing our nearest star through special solar scopes.
