Moovin’ n’ Groovin’ is this year’s theme at the Amador County Fair and who moves and grooves the longest distances and with more reason than our native migrating birds? Come see our window display July 27-30 which salutes 4 birds that survive by flying south for the winter to feed and back north in the spring to breed: the Calliope Hummingbird, the Cliff Swallow, the Mallard and the Swainson’s Hawk. The Calliope is our smallest migrator and the Swainson’s is our long distance migrator…back and forth to Argentina, a round trip of over 15,000 miles!
How do they do it? Is it genetic GPS, magnetic poles, or something else? Scientists are still trying to pinpoint how, but when they do, our own navigation capabilities will most likely benefit. Saving Wildlife Saves Us!

We love to spend time with our dogs and we like to take them everywhere! Sometimes dogs aren’t allowed in certain places or on certain trails. National Parks, like Yosemite, usually don’t allow dogs on trails or in the back country. State Parks, like Calaveras Big Trees, usually restrict dogs to fire roads and paved roads, although they are welcome in some camp grounds.
So, why aren’t dogs allowed? CLICK THE IMAGE TO LEARN MORE
