LATO News & Views

This is the place to find out what’s happening at our public partner schools, on our nature trails and in the communities we serve throughout San Luis Obispo County. Oak Ambassador alumni (trained junior oak nature guides) and volunteer docents will occasionally share their perspectives on their trail experiences and world.
