Mapping our bioregion

March 8, 2015   12:00 pm – 2:00 pm  Note: This walk is on a SUNDAY!

Join Wild Oakland  as Judy Goldhaft guides us in creating a two-dimensional interpretation of the environment around Lake Merritt! We’ll map key areas such as restoration sites, open space areas, creeks, sources of pollution, and more!

The workshop and walk will take place in Oakland by Lake Merritt @the Rotary Nature Center, 600 Bellevue Avenue. Bring maps, paper and drawing supplies if you have them, but we’ll also have some to share. Also, wear comfortable walking shoes and bring drinking water!

Judy Goldhaft is the Director of Planet Drum Foundation. Founded in 1973, Planet Drum uses a grassroots approach to ecology that focuses on community self-determination, sustainability, and regional self-reliance. PDF coined the term “bioregion” and defined the philosophy of “bioregionalism” to emphasize the relationship between humans and the areas they live within.

Wild Oakland provides free, Oakland-centered environmental education to busy urbanites. WO is a 100% Do-It-Yourself volunteer organization, from the Executive Director to the guiding committee to the walk leaders. All people involved in this project donate their time because of a shared passion for ecology and education.

Wild Oakland's ultimate objective is to foster “biophilia,” the instinctive attraction all humans have to living systems. We hope our programs will inspire awareness of wild places all around us. For more info see wildoakland.org
