Geography Field Trip to Temescal Canyon

Santa Monica Mountains are beautiful and special – they are the largest urban mountain range in the U.S.  with an unusual east-west trending. We are blessed to have it so close to our SMC main campus so that we can enjoy its beauty and explore its fascinating environment with just 15-minute drive.

On Sunday (April 2nd, 2017) young physical geographers in GEOG1 and GEOG5 had a wonderful filed trip in the Temescal Canyon Gateway Park in the Santa Monica Mountains. Through the field trip we better understood the physical environment in Santa Monica Mountains: the mild Mediterranean climate, the unique coastal sage and chaparral plant communities, the hydrological systems and the special geologic processes shaping the landscapes. We also learned how the Chumash, one of the Native American communities, lived in the mountains for over 10,000 years! Yes, geography helps us better understand our world and make a good difference in our world!

  1. Usually I do not read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice post.

  2. What’s up to every one, the contents existing at this web page are genuinely awesome
    for people knowledge, well, keep up the nice work fellows.

  3. Long time reader, first time commenter — so, thought I’d drop a comment..
    — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope
    you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built
    in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a
    bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google
    (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
