Join multimedia producer Joan Hamilton to learn about Audible Mount Diablo’s free multimedia tours and videos, which will introduce you to new parks and to fascinating features of parks you already know and love.
Audible Mount Diablo is an online resource for people who want to learn more about the natural and cultural history of parks in the Mount Diablo region. Sponsored by Mount Diablo Interpretive Association and Save Mount Diablo, its free multimedia tours combine lively interviews and music with the rush of wind and the chirps, howls, and growls of wildlife. Producer Joan Hamilton will describe the series and its history, profile the main contributors, and show clips from some of the most interesting episodes that feature plants.
