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!

Laguna Inspire: Morning Irwin Creek Walk Natural history..

 

Join us for an enjoyable early morning stroll along Irwin Creek to Lower Stone Farm. On this two- mile walk over mostly flat but uneven terrain, we’ll explore the beautiful area’s animal and plant life and learn about the history of Stone Farm and the on-going collaborative restoration work that’s bringing back a thriving ecosystem. We'll highlight some of the plants used in restoration work that support wildlife, water quality, and us all, and we’ll see the beginnings of a new seasonal wetland/vernal pool restoration project.

Starting in Heron Hall with hot drinks/light snacks and a brief presentation, we'll head out for a leisurely amble across the picturesque hay field to Irwin Creek and across Sanford Rd. to peaceful Lower Stone Farm and the Laguna channel. There, we’ll linger close to the wildlife-rich confluence of Irwin Creek and the Laguna to quietly observe the comings and goings of egrets, herons, and whatever other wildlife might make an appearance. Suitable for adults and children 9 years old and up (children must be accompanied by an adult). Heavy or significant rain cancels, in which case, you'd receive a full refund.  We hope you’ll join us!
