Have you ever seen a gray fox in your backyard or on a hike? The California gray fox is one of the most unique and hardy mammals that inhabit this region. In fact, they've been on the planet for over 6 million years! Join us at the EcoCenter to find out more about these beautiful animals from specialist gray fox researcher, Bill Leikam. Participants will enjoy a short presentation and Q&A session with Mr. Leikam, see research equipment that helps scientists observe and better understand gray foxes, and we'll finish with a short guided walk in the Baylands. Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Bill Leikam has studied the behavioral characteristics of the California gray fox in local habitats such as the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve.

Reservations are recommended. For more information or to RSVP, contact Eric at (650) 493-8000 ext. 345 or Eric [at] EVols.org.
