Cool News

Cool Davis Partners Coalition meeting was held December 20, 2017, at RepowerYolo offices in Davis.

A Davis contingent of about 40 led by mayor Robb Davis and council member Lucas Frerichs helped launch the new regional JUMP e-bikes system with an early morning jaunt starting at the Davis train station and sailing across the causeway to Raley Field in West Sacramento. Loretta Moore, Safe Routes to School coordinator for the City of Davis, and a happy staff member from the UC Davis Transportaton and Parking Services Go Club were among the enthusiastic group.

More May Is Bike Month activities to come!

Rooftop solar: Partial fixes for partial shade

by Mike Kluk

Most people know that solar panels produce little on a cloudy day. But you may not have heard that even spotty or partial shade can negatively affect solar panel production a surprising amount.

If large trees cast full shade on your house most of the day, solar may not be in the cards. But for the much more common issue of intermittent or partial shade caused by branches, chimneys, or other small obstructions, the future is still bright.

Tuleyome Naturalist class success 

Tuleyome’s 2018 Certified California Naturalist course was such a resounding success that the organization will be presenting two courses in 2019, one in the winter and one in the summer.

climate impacts

Birders from the Yolo Audubon Society are witnessing changes at our latitude. Winters are suddenly filled with species previously associated with warmer climates to the south, while some other winter visitors no longer come this far south.

This past December, birders were astounded to find eight species of warblers and three species of orioles in the county at once. Normal would be three and zero, respectively. 




vegan RECIPE


Lentil curry soup recipe

It may be getting warmer here in Davis, but the nights are still a bit chilly lending it the perfect weather to enjoy a nice warm bowl of soup! And before you think to yourself that this is just another boring lentil soup recipe, let me tell you, it’s not. With the flavors of curry, garam masala, and creamy coconut milk infused into it, you won’t ever look at lentil soup the same way again.
