Zoom Presentation: CA’s Magnificent Oaks And Their Many Relations 4/1/21

from Yerba Buena CNPS

CA’s Magnificent Oaks And Their Many Relations

April 1, THURSDAY @ 7:30 pm   Speaker: Kate Marianchild
Zoom registration here 

California’s iconic and magnificent oaks support a more diverse array of organisms than any other terrestrial ecosystem in the state. In a presentation filled with wood ducks, woodrats, woodpeckers, and many other species, author and naturalist Kate Marianchild will discuss the keystone role oaks play in oak woodland food webs. We’ll learn about symbiotic connections between oaks and other organisms, such as fungi, jays, and caterpillars, and we’ll marvel at the tiny wasps who bend enormous oak trees to their bidding. We will crawl with Kate through woodrat mansions, fight for breeding opportunities with acorn woodpeckers, and defend mistletoe with bluebirds. Who could stay away?
