In a rare alignment of events, Vic and I led separate class field trips to Bolsa Chica on Dec. 10. Mine was in the morning. Vic’s was in the afternoon. Mine was with the Orange County Conservation Corps. His was with his Golden West College biology class. Our students had completely different experiences. The goal of my field trip was to introduce the eight inner-city young men in my group to the natural world, and to get them excited about the wildlife that lives among us. To accomplish this, we do a wildlife survey, using a checklist that I prepared.

It was a warm and sunny Friday afternoon at the beach when 16-year-old Monica Candelario learned something new about herself. "I learned that I'm brave," she said. "I know when I put my mind into something, I can accomplish it. " Although she was afraid to get on a surfboard and learn to catch a wave, the excitement of tackling something new helped push her through. When Monica, a member of SteppingUP, a college preparation program offered by the nonprofit Orange County Community Housing Corp., first heard that her group was going to learn how to surf, she right away decided against the idea.

This was the hottest Labor Day weekend we’ve been through since we moved to California 26 years ago. The heat was brutal. And don’t even talk about the traffic. All 3 million Orange County residents must have been trying to find parking spaces at the beach this past weekend. We’re lucky to live in Huntington Beach, where the temperature seldom climbs even into the 90s. We get by at our house with only fans, but we’re wondering how many more years we can do this.

Vic and I just returned from a three-day weekend in Yuma, Ariz., and Brawley. In case that sounds like an odd vacation, I should point out that it was not a holiday for us. Vic was working, leading his natural history class for senior citizens on a field trip. I tagged along to provide comic relief. This outing was mainly a birding trip, but we learned about other things as well. At Yuma, we visited Imperial Dam, where water from the Colorado River is diverted into California’s All-American Canal and Arizona’s Gila Gravity Main Canal.

A Huntington Beach man choked to death Friday after swallowing a bait fish as a joke in front of students on a field trip on a boat off the coast of Long Beach, authorities said. Craig Harvey, the operations chief of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, said that when Jeffrey Twaddle, 54, began to choke, the ship returned to its dock. Paramedics took Twaddle to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Long Beach at 12:38 p.m. Friday. They attempted to resuscitate him, but Twaddle went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead at 1:13 p.m. Following an examination of Twaddle’s body on Sunday, coroners named the cause of death as “aspiration of fish,” Harvey said.
