Park Highlight  

Hidden Valley Regional Park is a 480 acre park in southeast Reno, accessed by Pembroke Dr. This park has many unique features including the Clarence K. Bath Memorial horse arena, numerous reservable and non-reservable picnic areas, and the Link Piazzo off-lease dog park. There are also some extraordinary hiking trails, and a good chance of seeing wild horses. 

Science Corner

The California Quail digests vegetation with the help of protozoans in its intestines. Chicks acquire the protozoans by pecking at the feces of the adult.
