Rincon Trip

Our final photoshoot as a class was at the Rincon reservation in Valley Center, CA. We learned about the effort the Native Americans are putting in to help restore their native plants into several gardens. These gardens were located right next to a peaceful creek that ran on the side of the hills. They are separated into four sections with one facing the ocean, one the desert, one the mountains, and one the valley. After the students helped plant, Dr. Joely Proudfit, a proud descendant of the Pechanga band of Luiseño, talked about the history of the reservation and the struggles of its restoration.
