Tune in to the Open Space Authority’s Facebook page at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 26 for an engaging and interactive live-stream nature walk through Santa Clara’s Ulistac Natural Area!
This is a live-stream event that you can watch from a desktop, laptop, phone, or iPad in the comfort of your own home. Viewers can ask questions through the comment feature, and we will answer them in real time!
Join us with Docent Dennis to learn about the history of this beautiful and unique pocket of open space along the Guadalupe River, where wildlife roam and migratory birds stop as they travel along the Pacific Coast.
Ulistac was faced with the threat of development for decades, but in the 1990’s a group of local neighbors, bird watchers, and environmentalists came together to protect this last remaining bit of nature in the city. On this walk, we’ll see 17 different areas of Ulistac that have been turned into native riparian, oak woodland, oak savanna, upland chaparral habitats, totaling over 18 acres! Join us to hear the remarkable story of how Ulistac was transformed from a neglected “weed patch” into an oasis of native California habitats in the midst of Silicon Valley.
