The Awesome American Badger Presentation with Susan Kirks, N

In the past five years, increased badger activity has been documented in the Laguna de Santa Rosa Watershed, particularly in Sebastopol and Western Sonoma County. Why is this occurring? Join Naturalist Susan Kirks, entering her 18th year of field study and observations of the reclusive American Badger (Taxidea taxus) and its life cycle and activities, to better understand this awesome mammal and its current activity in Sonoma County. “There are many myths about badgers,” shares Susan. Discovering the true nature of the American Badger has been a years-long study of Naturalist Kirks. We’ll consider similarities and differences of European Badgers, Honey Badgers, and American Badgers. The way American Badger lives in and moves through its habitat will be described, along with the best ways to co-exist with badgers in our grassland ecosystems. We’ll also learn about habitat areas and wildlife corridors in Sonoma County. An update will be provided on the petition to remove American Badger and Gray Fox from the CA Department of Fish and Wildlife’s mammal hunting list.  


Naturalist Susan Kirks’ conservation and education efforts on behalf of American Badger are recognized throughout California.  Susan also serves as President of Madrone Audubon Society in Sonoma County and chairs the Board of Directors of Paula Lane Action Network, a Petaluma-based conservation nonprofit that helped save the first and thus far only habitat property in California specifically conserved for American Badger, located in South Sonoma County.

Richard Smith & Pat Bergeson

Richard Smith & Pat Bergeson
 

Blues, Joplin Rags, Bach, Chopin, flat picking fiddle tunes, Sousa Marches, fingerstyle jazz to straight Travis picking tunes, makes up his evolving repertoire!

 

When Richard Smith picks up a guitar, it's a treat for the ears and the eyes. Audiences watch in amazement, while his fingers dance over fretboard and strings, and listen in delight, as melody and groove fill the room. It's a natural gift. Richard started playing on a six-string at the age of 5 after hearing his father picking “Down South Blues” by Chet Atkins and Merle Travis.

Equally at home with guitar and diatonic and chromatic harmonica styles, Pat Bergeson toured and recorded with Chet Atkins for several years and afterwards became a member of Lyle Lovett's band and also toured with Shelby Lynne . His recording credits include albums by such diverse artists as Chet Atkins, Chuck Loeb, Sixpence None the Richer, Randy Travis, and many more!

A Year with the Urban Gray Fox Presentation with Bill Leikam


Join us for this informative and engaging multi-media presentation about the gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus),
a carnivorous mammal native to the Laguna de Santa Rosa Watershed and region.  Although gray foxes are frequently spotted in Sonoma County and the Bay Area, very little is known about them, especially their behavior. The Fox Guy, Bill Leikam, begins his presentation with an overview of the gray fox’s general ecology as an orientation to the life of a gray fox. He then weaves together the science through personal stories about foxes he studied in the Bay Area as he follows them over the course of a year. You will witness juvenile gray foxes begin new relationships, and experience the secret lives of gray fox pups as they learn how to survive in their ever changing world.  This presentation is most suitable for high school age and adults.


Bill Leikam conducts unprecedented research on the behavior of the gray fox. He is an Associate Director for Guadalupe-Coyote Resource Conservation District. Eight years ago, Bill began documenting, photographing and researching the behavior of the gray fox. This study resulted in the development of the Urban Wildlife Research Project. He introduced his work to videographer and naturalist Greg Kerekes and welcomed him on board to join in with the research. They are dedicated to developing viable habitat and connectivity corridors for the gray fox and other wildlife living to the east of Highway 101 and the shore of the San Francisco Bay. Their work has attracted a good deal of attention by the press. They give highly acclaimed presentations about their work to corporate, private, and an array of wildlife organizations.

ACR Mountain Lion Project: Meet Your Neighbors Presentation

Dr. Quinton Martins will talk about Audubon Canyon Ranch’s Mountain Lion Project and his work with other large carnivores around the world. The ACR Mountain Lion Project is a community-based research and education project in the Mayacamas Mountains of Sonoma and Napa Counties that aims to increase scientific and public understanding of mountain lions, identify priority habitat areas for conservation, and increase appreciation for these important top predators. Come and learn more about these majestic, yet elusive creatures living in our area. Dr. Martins will share some of the Project’s preliminary research findings, answer your questions, and address fears some of you may have about how we can co-exist with this ecologically significant species.


Dr. Quinton Martins is a Wildlife Ecologist with Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) at their Bouverie Preserve near Glen Ellen. As ACR’s principal investigator on the Mountain Lion Project, Dr. Martins is a leading expert on large mountain cats. The founder and former CEO of the Cape Leopard Trust in South Africa, Dr. Martins has over 20 years of field experience in wilderness areas throughout much of Africa, Saudi Arabia and the USA. His work highlights the manner in which charismatic and iconic apex predators like leopards and mountain lions, act as umbrella species, and can lead to broad ecosystem conservation.

Watershed Perspectives: Shady Creek Walk Natural History wa

On hot summer days the cool shady creeks in our Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed are the perfect place for a quick walk or leisurely stroll. They support a dense, multi-story canopy of trees and shrubs that provides shade to hikers and wildlife alike. Join Laguna Foundation staff and Laguna Guides (birders and naturalists), including our Executive Director, Kevin Munroe, for this delightful adventure of a lesser-known shady oasis, Windsor Creek in Windsor.

The walk will be approximately three miles long on mostly flat, unpaved and paved trails, and is suitable for adults and older teens. We will begin at the Laguna Environmental Center in Heron Hall with coffee/tea/light snacks and a brief overview presentation about the Laguna watershed, highlighting this and other lesser-known shady creek walks. After carpooling to Windsor for the walk, we will return to the Laguna Environmental Center by 1:00pm. Participants are welcome to stay afterwards to enjoy a picnic inside delightful Heron Hall or outside at the picnic tables (bring your own lunch).

In addition to learning common plants and wildlife of these riparian corridors, we will learn about agency and volunteer efforts to restore and enhance waterways throughout the watershed. Come adventure with us!
