Linnaeus at the Lagoon — The Five Kingdoms of Lake Merritt

This event has passed.

It’s not actually a lake! All the squirrels are imports! And yes, there are sharks that patrol the waters of this beloved urban slough.

We’ll go on a whirlwind tour of all five Linnaean kingdoms and learn how some of the animals, plants, fungi, protists, and monera fit together in this misnamed watery ecosystem. Though you’ve walked around its three mile circumference many times, there’s so much more to learn about the process and results of renewed human research at Lake Merritt. Check out recent bio-blitz compilations and other citizen and scientist cooperative research.

Presented by environmental educator Constance Taylor, founder of “Wild Oakland”.
