Jan 8th 7-8 pm PST-Lakeside Chat with James Covel: Stories from the Early Days at Lake Merritt

Before there was iNaturalist, before there were smart phones, even before earth-observing satellites, the first municipal naturalist in the United States Paul Covel developed a philosophy and practice of citizen science in Oakland, CA. His motto, "Bringing Nature and People Together" resonates today.
Wishing everyone a safe, healthy and peaceful New Year. We would like to invite you to join us for the first Lakeside Chat of 2021, "Stories from the Early Days at Lake Merritt", featuring James Covel of the Monterey Bay Aquarium (and son of legendary Rotary Nature Center Naturalist Paul Covel).
Friday January 8th from 7 pm-8 pm PST. There will be a 30 minute illustrated talk followed by questions and answers, a trivia game with prizes and discussion. Please share widely with your members and social media.
Description: The story of Lake Merritt is a story of people connecting to nature in the heart of a big city. The city established the first municipal naturalist program in the country (at the first waterfowl refuge in the country) to nurture that connection to nature. We'll dig into this story, and talk about the people that were involved, including Paul Covel, the City's first naturalist.
This is a free, completely online program. A zoom link will be sent to eventbrite registrants before the show.
We are looking forward to brighter days at Lake Merritt and around the world. Take care and hope to seeing you on the 8th.
