November 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join naturalist Jerry Coe for an educational Zoom discussion as he discusses the pre-colonial settlements of the indigenous people in the San Francisco Bay Area. He will cover the history of the Miwok and Ohlone people, how they survived within the landscape, and some of their common cultural practices. It is estimated that there were over several thousand Coastal Miwok in the North Bay at the time of the Spanish arrival in 1769. Most of this population was dispersed within 100 years. Many died of European diseases. Miwok people still live in the Bay Area today, with the largest group at Graton Rancheria in Sonoma County.

Fall is here and it’s time once again to welcome back our regional migrating birds! Join us for a special birding seminar on November 20th, where we will focus on our avian friends who are making their seasonal journey through the bay area. No birding experience needed.

This one-hour online seminar will give you the skills to identify common birds in the field and to effectively use essential tools like binoculars and bird guides. We will help you identify new birds by observing flight patterns, noting body shapes and sizes,  hearing songs, and looking for other clues to bird identification.

 

Jerry Coe is a naturalist with over eight years of intensive training in ornithological field identification. He spent 15 years as a volunteer in Nevada’s Great Basin National Park, using bird activities to assess the health of habitats. Jerry has also guided outdoor expeditions all over the world.

Oaxaca Journal by Oliver Sacks

Join us for a lively interactive program as we discuss Oliver Sacks’ book, Oaxaca Journal. Sacks recounts his exploration of southern Mexico, its rich culture and history, and his specific quest for a new botanical discovery. Friends of China Camp naturalist Harold Hirsch will lead our online group discussion via Zoom.

Excerpt from Goodreads.com:

The best-selling author of Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks is well know as an explorer of the human mind–a neurologist with a gift for complex, insightful portrayals of people and their conditions. However, he is also a card-carrying member of the American Fern Society, and since childhood has been fascinated by these primitive plants and their ability to survive and adapt in many climates. Oaxaca Journal is Sacks’s spellbinding account of his trip with a group of fellow fern enthusiasts to the beautiful, history-steeped province of Oaxaca, Mexico. Bringing together Sacks’s passion for natural history and the richness of human culture with his sharp eye for detail, Oaxaca Journal is a captivating evocation of a place, its plants, its people, and its myriad wonders
