Creek Macroecology Field Trip

November 17, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

$30 – $35

In this hands-on field workshop you will learn the processes which shape our local creeks, and hear stories about the varied creatures which use them in an intricate web of life. We will focus on experiential learning and curious investigation as we explore these concepts. From aquatic bugs (key BMI’s to order!) to fish, birds (learn bird calls) to plants, and sediment transport to urbanization, this class will be a whirlwind of life as a creek.

Instructors:

Theo Fitanides is a gardener at the Regional Parks Botanic Garden, and has worked in restoration nurseries and biological consulting as a birder and botanist.

Helen Fitanides manages creek water quality monitoring and oyster restoration for The Watershed Project, and has a penchant for citizen science. Theo and Helen enjoy integrating their love of nature with community action and involvement.

Location: Marsh Creek, Mitchell Canyon, Mount Diablo State Park
