Topic Specific Natural History Outings Enhance Land Trust’s Field Trip Program
Last April, professional herpetologist Jeff Alvarez led a reptiles and amphibians hike on the Wantrup Preserve. Thanks to Jeff’s sharp eye and great hike leader skills, folks were able to get up close and personal with a number of very cool native species including California King Snake, Western Toad, Slender Salamander, Sierra Tree Frog and Southern Alligator Lizard.
Also last April, professional wildlife ecologist and tracker Meghan Walla Murphy led a wildlife tracking workshop on the Dunn-Wildlake Preserve. Meghan did an excellent job opening participant’s eyes to the world of observing, understanding and appreciating wildlife species through interpretation of tracks and sign.
