The San Diego Natural History

Museum (SDNHM) will host sever- al guided nature walks in upcoming months, led by trained Canyoneer volunteers. This series of interpre- tive hikes will show participants Southern Californian plant and ani- mal life around the county, as well as a myriad of diverse hiking trails and terrains.

The hikes include every level of

difficulty from easy to extra diffi- cult, including some boulder scram- bling, low, light and rough trails. No reservations are required, and the canyoneers will help you explore deserts, inland areas, the south bay, mountains and the north coastal and central areas of San Diego. In April and May, hikes will take place all over the county from Po- way to Tierrasanta, Allied Gardens and Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. For dates, times, difficulty levels and driving directions, visit: sdnhm. org/canyoneers/calendar.php.

SDMOM’S RE-ACCREDITATION The American Association of Museums (AAM) recently awarded The San Diego Museum of Man (SDMOM) re-accreditation—the highest national recognition achiev- able by an American museum. The SDMOM has been an ac-

credited museum since 1973, mean- ing that it has continually upheld the highest standards in regards to collections stewardship, gover- nance, institutional planning, eth- ics, education and interpretation and risk management. Accredited museums are defined by their ac- countability to the public and the museum community. “Accreditation is an entirely self-motivated process, and is no small task,” said Ford W. Bell, AAM president, in a recent statement. “Accreditation is clearly a signifi- cant achievement. But put simply, it means the citizens of the communi- ties served by these museums have in their midst one of America’s fin- est museums.”
