Nestle Corporation has been given a 3-year permit to extract water for their "Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water," with new monitoring requirements. This US Forest Service decision came after news stories and lawsuits that began in 2015 brought attention to Nestle's long-expired permit and reports of damage to fragile habitats due to the water extraction. The new monitoring requirements are perceived as inadequate by activists who brought lawsuits against Nestle.

"Be Fruitful and Multiply: The Reproductive Life of Insects" is the topic of the Museum's July Brown Bag Lunch Lecture by Museum Biologist Stefanie Ritter. "The reproductive lives of insects are as diverse and interesting as the critters are themselves. Carnivorous children turn into vegetarian grown ups. Children are orphaned. Fathers are beheaded, mothers perfumed – everything is possible." A $5 donation is requested if you are not a Museum Member or sponsor. Beverages are provided.
The Free Self-Guided Tour starts between 9am and noon at Eminger's Mountain Nursery in Big Bear Lake. Tours are allowed until 4:00 pm. Tour maps, books, vendor and sponsor tents are available for information, demonstrations and more. Learn more at this website.
