Have you ever wondered what kinds of oaks dot California’s hills and line our fertile valleys, providing our state’s most wildlife-rich habitats? Well, help is at hand. In a talk filled with humor and fun memory aids, author and naturalist Kate Marianchild will teach us to identify northern California’s oaks by their acorns, caps, leaves, and galls. With acorns in hand, you will learn how to distinguish a valley oak from an Oregon oak and a canyon live oak from a coast live oak. Kate will also share cool facts about oaks, including their co-evolutionary relationships with California scrub-jays and caterpillars. This one-hour talk will be followed by time for questions and answers.
