Date

  • Coyotes
    Monday, January 10, 2022
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    - Learn about our smallest wolf: the Coyote. The Coyote has lived alongside humans for hundreds of generations: recently humans have started to notice differences between city coyotes and rural coyotes. Learn about these elusive animals’ daily lives and how we impact them.
  • Invasive versus Native
    Monday, January 24, 2022
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    - California’s native ecology is under assault from invaders! Learn about native plants and animals and how they are being affected by invaders from other places. We’ll discuss the process of naturalization and measures we can take to help our local flora and fauna.
  • Ophidians
    Monday, January 31, 2022
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    - Snakes, or ophidians, are very diverse animals. In California we have aquatic, desert, burrowing and some invasive tree snakes. They have a wide variety of adaptations that help them survive in our diverse climate including specialized locomotion, diet and even mimicry. We will meet some of these special animals and explore some of their more unique attributes.
  • Great Invertebrates
    Monday, February 7, 2022
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    - Discover things without skeletons that aren’t necessarily insects or spiders. Gastropoda, Myopoda, Annelida, Cephalopoda, and Onychophora are all around us. Learn about some weird wiggly creatures that you might not even consider.
  • Spiders
    Monday, February 28, 2022
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    - Spiders are utterly amazing. They can live underwater, underground, in a tree, and even in our homes without ever meeting a human being. Our native spiders are almost never dangerous and are very important to the ecosystem. Come learn about our local diversity of spiders, their anatomy, and their life cycle. Do a classroom demo on spider movement mechanics!
