In The Spotlight
Currently in the DCN Community Spotlight is the Yolo Hiker web site,
Log on to the web site for the new Fall 2004 through late Spring 2005
schedule of guided hikes in the Cache Creek, Putah Creek, Berryessa and
Blue Ridge areas of Yolo County and surrounds. Andrew Fulks and
friends have provided maps, photos and descriptive information on this
site, to help raise awareness of our regional natural places and
resources, for all to enjoy. Take a look, and join them on one of the
many scheduled hikes.
Every few weeks, the DCN web team chooses a new Davis-oriented web site

home page. Good spotlight candidates are new or recently revised web
sites, ones that deserve more attention or have timely content. If
you've a suggestion for a spotlight candidate, please contact the web
