Following is the latest installment in our Sunday Venture Out feature.

Deep Eddy spurred by dam breach


As many of you know, PARD has been working with Michael Barnes at the Statesman on a regular feature with a focus on the outdoors, including parks and park stories. The feature runs every Sunday on page 3 in the Venture Out section of Life and Arts as well as on his Out and About online blog. Many thanks to Gloria Mata Pennington and Victor Ovalle for their work. If you have an idea for a feature, please let me know.
