California’s oak woodlands are home to an array of extraordinarily diverse and fascinating plants and animals. As Kate Marianchild shares stories about the intimate lives of some of her favorite species species, we will crawl with her though woodrat houses, undulate in mating balls with newts, gaze at the sky through the third eye of a lizard, and pollinate manzanita in Middle C with bumblebees. Kate’s book Secrets of the Oak Woodlands, Plants and Animals among California’s Oaks, is a bestselling classic of California nature writing that has awakened thousands of Californians to the wonders of our oak woodlands. Kate’s book and close focus binoculars will be available for purchase.
