Hey all you hikers, mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts: Please welcome Dr. Norm Herr, a local professor, who will answer your questions on this site.
We want to encourage you to get out and enjoy all the great open space in and around Santa Clarita, but we realize that in doing so, you may have some questions about things you see out on the trail. Author, teacher, scientist, avid hiker and outdoorsman, CSUN Professor Norman Herr is happy to answer your most obscure questions about Mother Earth. As you enjoy the beautiful Santa Clarita open space areas and have questions about flora, fauna, animals, rocks, etc., send them to Dr. Norm. You may pose your question below; it will be answered on this page. If you wish to include a photo with your question, upload it to Flickr and share the link to the photo in your comment.
