Perspectives on Mount Diablo
Exhibit at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley

April 27 - June 29, 2013

The iconic Mount Diablo is nothing if not complex. This exhibit features some of the mountain’s diverse qualities and intriguing history. It includes antique surveying equipment and stories about the Mountain’s Initial Point, features plants and trees unique to the Mountain, and traces the growth of the State Park from 1921 to today. Special displays are provided on the Diablo Beacon and the new outdoor treasure hunts called geocaching.

Underwritten by the Lesher Foundation, the exhibit is collaboration among the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, Mount Diablo Surveyors Historical Society, Mount Diablo Interpretive Association and Save Mount Diablo. Speakers from each of these groups will talk with visitors each Saturday from 10:30 to noon during the exhibit.

Animals of Save Mount Diablo's BioBlitz

The following four wildlife images were captured during one of Save Mount Diablo’s “BioBlitz” events.  A BioBlitz brings together expert naturalists from a variety of disciplines to count every species of plant and animal they can identify from a particular place over a 24-hour period.  Save Mount Diablo uses data from these events to provide important baseline information about the natural resources on and around Mount Diablo.
