The City of Riverside has many sister cities around the world! Sendai, Japan is one of them! The Ameal Moore Nature Center hosted a group of students from Sendai for a hike, bioblitz (a mass count of animal life in the park), and talk. Student volunteers from the STEM Academy acted as student guides, leading hikes and conducting the bioblitz.
The nature center was pleased to greet the students and looks forward to doing so again next year!
