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.Added to the calendar on Monday Sep 10th, 2012 3:22 PM
