I opened a new chapter: we've got nine books on Southern California biodiversity and naturalist hiking. One way we can protect what's left of nature is to celebrate it with one another, and that begins with some awareness of just what's out there. You will probably find that, in looking up trail books and identification books, your local area is represented by a certain digital suffix in the Dewey Decimal system---ask your librarian! .9794, for example, follows numbers of books in the San Diego area, so I may bring home a 580.1 book on oceans, but if it has the additional numbers it's specifically about our local beaches!

One of our first trips will be to Point Loma---I have a book on its natural beach life!

Also: if you happen to try my blog: hello to Brian from the library, today!
