DID YOU KNOW?
A shuttle carries the thread of the weft yarn while weaving on a
loom. Shuttles are passed back and forth through the shed, between the threads of the warp in order to make the fabric. By raising different warp threads and using a contrasting color the weaver creates the design.

Because a weaving shuttle goes back and forth, NASA decided to name the transport vehicle that would go back and forth between the Earth and the International Space Station the Shuttle.

Come visit the original shuttle in the weaving room at La Purisima Mission

Mountain Lion Sighting Confirmed on Upper Loop Trail

When you visit La Purisima Mission State Historic Park you are entering the home of the mountain lion-the only home he has.

You must stay alert of any dangers on the trails. It is vital that you respect the parks wildlife. Although these animals are seldom seen, they are present.

It is safer to hike with a group than alone.

Your dog MUST be on a leash at all times when inside the park boundary.

Never let children run ahead of you – keep them within arms reach.

Report any mountain lion sightings, in detail, to a ranger at the nearest state park facility as soon as possible.

For more information about how you can protect yourself from a mountain lion encounter please click on the link provided. The tips provided by the mountain lion foundation are based upon the best information currently available.

In 1928 Californians voted three to one for a $6 million bond to help establish the California Park Commission. Docents at La Purisima Mission are proud to support the California State Parks. Yes, we know that this Model A Ford from 1928 happens to be a US Forestry car but you have to admit it's pretty cool. Molly Machin

CHUMASH ASTRONOMY In the Santa Lucia Mountains of SLO County there is a tree carving called The Salamander Tree. The arborglyph is in fact an important Chumash artifact. The carving was named that because the lines were thought to be six legs. The lower part of the carving is in fact a sundial as well as a calendar. The upper region is a star-chart depicting the Big Dipper rotating around the North Star at different times of the year. The arborglyph allowed the Chumash to keep trac of the solstice and equinox. The Salamander Tree is an example of the Chumash people's sophisticated understanding of astronomy.

Are those little white flowers on the coyote plant?

NO, the white foam you see is from the SPITTLEBUG.

1. Spittlebugs eggs are laid at the base of a plant
2. The Nymphs come out in April and May
3. Nymphs move up the plant to feed on tender leave.
4. Nymphs secrete a protective foamy spit as they eat.
5. Nymphs feed for at least a month before becoming adults.
6. Adults live about 3 weeks before laying eggs and dying.
