Have you ever wondered where the raccoon who raids your trashcan at night spends its days? How about those skunks you smell around? Join Lila Talcott-Travis, director of Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue, as she clues us in on how non-human mammals survive in Oakland.
Learning about the natural history of mammals like opossums, squirrels, deer, and of course, raccoons and skunks gives us insight into where, why, and how these animals live in the city. Turn the next urban wildlife encounter you have into a fantastic field-observation experience!
We’ll meet in front of the Children’s Fairyland entrance on Saturday, July 25 at 12 pm. Bring drinking water, comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, and a hat.
The walk is free, and donations are gratefully accepted!
