Summer Solstice–Respect Nature

The Rock in Morro Bay California is a sacred Chumash site, home to many birds including the Peregrine Falcon, and a beautiful sight to see.

Now, in all the United States, outside of Alaska, there are perhaps 50 pairs of Peregrine Falcon that mate, lay eggs, hatch and fledge their young each year. The State Fish and Game Commission placed the American peregrine falcon on the endangered species list in 1973, and designated Morro Rock as an ecological reserve for protection of a peregrine falcon eyrie. Access to the rock is prohibited and persons trespassing on the reserve are cited.

Please read this link to understand how these incredible birds, nature, and the Chumash peoples are being disrespected.
