From the Valley of Hearts Delight to the high-tech capital of the world, the Santa Clara Valley has gone through tremendous ecological as well as cultural changes. These changes have been shaped by the rich diversity of settlers, people who brought with them their industry, cultures and habits. How did a booming agricultural era, followed by a shift to urbanization affect the landscape, flora and fauna and what are the ecological changes and resulting issues?

Cristina Siegel is an Environmental Studies Lecturer at SJSU, Board Member of the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory, and active volunteer for the Peninsula Open Space Trust. Her love of the natural environment generated building and living for 15 years in an off-grid, solar-powered cabin on 34 acres of beautiful Blue Ridge mountain land.
