Sugarloaf Perspectives Description:
Storytelling is humanity’s oldest artform, likely originating before the cave paintings of the Stone Age. This summer we introduce “Sugarloaf Perspectives”, a storytelling series that brings new voices and people to the park while teaching about the natural environment. Every other Saturday, instead of our regular family campfire, we will have a Perspective.

On 6/11, Sonoma Ecology Center’s ED Richard Dale and Park Manager John Roney relate how a partnership between non-profits, community, and government led to today’s operation of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.
On 6/25, world-renowned multi-disciplinary artist Bernie Krause will present how sound became his life-long pursuit, and how it applies to conservation.
On 7/9, Dr. Dan Levitis will delight us with an unusual story, even for a biologist: have you ever been barfed on by a condor?
On 7/23, we’ll learn about the secret lives of Alma and Arsel, leaders of the Senderos Naturales program.
On 8/6, Megan Walla-Murphy re-introduces bear culture to Sonoma County.
On 8/20, we welcome Desi Harp, member of the Onasáti tribe (mistakenly called “guapo” by the Spanish and “wappo” by American settlers) to regale us with song, dance, and the story of creation, and finally on 9/3 we are left gasping from laughter induced by SEC’s Educator Jonny Ehlers.

Tickets are $20. Meet at the amphitheater. We invite you to show up earlier than 7pm for a self-guided nature walk or picnic prior to the event. Parking fees apply.
