Friends of the Dunes is excited to offer a Drop-in Dune Detectives Summer Camp at the Humboldt Coastal Nature Center. This week long day camp program for ages 5-8 will connect participants to the diverse coastal habitats of the Samoa Peninsula. The Nature Center is located in Manila between the Humboldt Bay and Pacific Ocean, an ideal location for exploring a diverse array of coastal habitats by foot.
Participants will visit beaches, dunes, wetlands, and coastal forests while learning about nature and history through inquiry based learning and creative expression. While exploring diverse coastal habitats, participants will learn about the animals and plants that live there through games, songs, and hands-on exploration.
The cost of this half day program is $25 a day ($20 for members) or, register your child for the whole week of camp for $95 ($80 for members). Space is limited, and scholarships are available, please call (707) 444-1397 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.

In the first hour of my show tonight, I'm scheduled to hook up by phone with both Chris 'Kid' Andersen, playing the first of the Blue Lake Casino Blues Series shows tonight, and with Tommy Castro, who's playing tonight at Humbrews.
They are both Johnny Winter fans, so that will likely be one of the
things we talk about.

Clay Smith left Humboldt six years ago. Join his victorious, albeit brief, return to Blue Lake's Logger Bar this Saturday at 9ish. Expect new songs and old ones.
Smith gave a G-rated version of why he left, as well as an R-rated version. He also discussed what he's been into lately (wearing socks), and his new band ("Cassius Clay & The Knockouts").

A Federal judge ruled earlier today that the California death penalty is unconstitutional. Counterintuitively, that doesn't mean that there is no longer a death penalty in California because the ruling applies to just one person. However, there are possible larger ramifications and earlier today Larry Trask talked to former Los Angeles District Attorney Gil Garcetti about the case and its ramifications. A recording of that interview is here:
