In this Spotlight, we take a look at our newest children’s book, Dasha on the Trail, with author Gwynne Bruck. We also heard from special guest, Mission Trails Regional Park Ranger Heidi Gutknecht, who shared with us the importance of following leash laws when visiting parks with your dog and some fun facts about the wildlife at the park.
After twenty five years as a boat captain, Gwynne Bruck decided to change course and began writing and illustrating children’s books. In her first book, she highlights some of the local wildlife that Dasha points out on their hikes together. It is her hope that readers will learn a little about their wild neighbors and go out and explore the beauty of San Diego’s open spaces.
