New Bay Area Natural History/Environmental Lecture Series

Friends of Five Creeks is sponsoring a new lecture series.  Bay Currents talks will highlight Bay-area-related natural history and environmental issues, with an emphasis on positive solutions. They will be held in the  Edith Stone Room of the Albany Community Center, 1249 Marin (at Masonic), on first Mondays Sept. – May, except holidays, with no December talk. Talks are free, but seating is limited.

The series begins Monday, Sept. 9 (Monday): 6:30 PM – 9 PM, with a visual tour of floral wonders of the great Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta with Dr. Steve Edwards, 30-year head of the East Bay Regional Parks Botanic Garden called “Late Summer Splendor of the Delta” It is a  special two-hour visual tour of the botanic wonders of the watery world of the Delta

The speaker is Dr. Steve Edwards, geologist, paleontologist, naturalist, and native-plant expert who has headed the East Bay Regional Parks Botanic Garden for 30 years. September is a superb time to “visit” the watery world where the great Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers meet — since plants do not lack for water, some of the showiest wildflowers are in bloom. This talk also is valuable background for knotty decisions on the future of the Delta.
