Bolsa Chica Earth Day Festival In Review

There was a great turn out of people at this event. The Lorquin Entomological Society represented the insects of Southern California well. Celebrating all sorts of wildlife, the Bolsa Chica Conservancy hosted a variety of organizations that ranged from the study of nematology by the University of California at Riverside to the protection and conservation of Raptors by the O.C. Bird of Prey Center. Insects fell into a category somewhere in the middle.
