In this Walking Ecology activity, you will get to visit Sedgwick Reserve’s field station followed by a brief walk to observe some of our natural communities including oak woodlands and coastal sage scrub. After a brief climb, you will enjoy expansive views of the reserve and Earth scientist Dr. Marc Mayes will (1) help you “read landscapes” like ecosystem scientists by observing vegetation patterns, and (2) illustrate how satellite and drone-based remote sensing are being used in research and conservation management of coastal sage scrub, including a demonstration drone flight over research areas at Sedgwick. Advance Registration is required.
