Lectures

Golden Gate Raptors, Rachel Carson, and the Evolution of Community Science

When: Thu., Feb. 15, 6-7:30 p.m. 2018

During the last decade, community or citizen science has erupted as a full player onto the landscape of serious science, whether astronomy or conservation biology. Allen will trace the origins of community wildlife monitoring from the hawk-shoots of hardwood ridges of Pennsylvania to modern-day raptor tracking on the grassy hills above the Golden Gate. Along the way, we will revisit Rachel Carson’s only visit to Marin County, ponder the future of raptor populations in California, and consider why National Parks are an essential component toward building an engaged citizenry.
