SEPTEMBER’S SPEAKER SERIES
CALIFORNIA RAPTORS PREDATORS OF THE SKY
Each autumn, tens of thousands of hawks, kites, vultures, eagles, osprey, and harriers pass through Marin County and coalesce briefly over the Headlands before heading south. Since 1983, volunteers of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory have monitored and tracked this flight, providing today a 30+ year database on California raptor numbers, and a lot of interesting stories about these magnificent birds. Come hear Allen Fish, the GGRO director, speak about the Pacific Coast hawk migration as it relates to climate change, Rachel Carson, Peet’s Coffee, and chicken giblets.

BOOKS UNDER THE BOWER
Monthly Book Club at China Camp State Park
By Elizabeth Kolbert
Over the last half-billion years, there have been five mass extinctions, when the diversity of life on earth suddenly and dramatically contracted. Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth extinction, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. This time around, the cataclysm is us.
In prose that is at once frank, entertaining, and deeply informed, The New Yorker writer Elizabeth Kolbert tells us why and how human beings have altered life on the planet in a way no species has before. Interweaving research in half a dozen disciplines, descriptions of the fascinating species that have already been lost, and the history of extinction as a concept, Kolbert provides a moving and comprehensive account of the disappearances occurring before our very eyes.
