Place: S Cruz Tabby Cat, S Ardo Wunpost Rd
1101 Cedar St

For the fifth walk, we will meet at San Ardo's oil fields, which border, and now straddle, the Salinas River.

We will experience in embodied time and space the effects of fossil fuel extraction already at work, both visibly and invisibly, and continue our exploration of conflicts between private interests and our growing understandings of what's common/uncommon in the Salinas River Valley.

This walk will have two parts: first on a public but dead-end road paralleling the river and overlooking the oil fields, accessed from Rte 101 south of San Ardo; and second, on a public road that threads through the oil fields accessed further north from the town of San Ardo. Both roads are paved but uneven and not explicitly ADA compliant.

In order not to lose anyone as we move from part 1 to part 2 of the walk, please RSVP that you are coming, and/or stay in touch by email:"> address is different than the last one, please note!). As always, if you want to carpool, send a note about that too, and we will try to help connect. Santa Cruz people will meet at Tabby Cat at 9 am to carpool.
