Helping our local Alpine girl scout troop to earn their Bronze Award this year, BCLT is proud to announce that we've officially begun restoration of a small section of our native California bunch grass habitat at Wright's Field MSCP Preserve in Alpine. This quarter-acre section of our beautiful grassland habitat will be restored to it's pre-historic ecosystem, with native bunch grasses and wild flowers predominating, and will serve as a visual demonstration of the grasslands that the Kumeyaay Indians saw when they arrived over 8,000 years ago at the place we now call Wright's Field.

Jim is a career federal civil servant; after a few years working for the Army, he spent the bulk of his time employed by the US Navy as an electronic technician specializing in shipboard missile defense systems. Living in Alpine since 1993 on the western edge of the Wright’s Field preserve Jim realized a personal obligation to give back to the land that he frequents and treasures. He currently serves as the BCLT Treasurer and Director of Land Operations for the Greater Alpine area.

Jim can often be found walking at Wright's Field in the evenings with his wife Ellen, and their miniature horse, Crackers. Welcome, Jim!

What a beautiful morning for our bench dedication with the Cadenhead's!  Our dedication ceremony was both intimate and well-attended.
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us! Especially the Cadenhead family for your generosity and strong show of support. 

Wright's Field now has a new gathering place. A place to sit and relax, watch the sunset, and maybe meet your neighbors...

"This bench is a gift to the people of Alpine." - Keli Cadenhead
