Course Description

The Lafayette Reservoir is a Bay Area jewel, a multi-use recreation area operated by the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD). Join Professor Eder for a morning walk around “the Res” followed by a seminar. It’s a chance to discover the seasonal landscape changes that sweep the reservoir and to learn about the plant and animal life it supports. The impact of drought and how management practices try to deal with it will also be explored. We will meet on the east side of the parking lot. Bring cash or a credit card for day parking fees. Other necessities: sturdy shoes, sun hat, sunscreen, and water. Note: This is a moderately challenging walk over hilly, unevenly paved ground.  Picnic tables are unavailable.
