Are you worried about disease-carrying ticks in wooded areas, or anxious about rattlesnakes? You could get some answers and advice at Eaton Canyon Nature Center. In the first of two events hosted by the Sierra Club Forest Committee, Jeff Burkhart, Professor of Biology Emeritus, University of La Verne, will describe how to deal safely with these interesting organisms inhabiting the San Gabriel Mountains, as well as other local recreation areas. Jeff Burkkart has devoted much of his career to the study of arthropods (insects, spiders, scorpions), and reptiles and amphibians, many of which can be noxious or dangerous in one way or another. His talk will focus on those that can be harmful directly, but also those that can transmit pathogens such as Lyme disease and salmonella, sharing personal experiences with some of the great variety of potentially dangerous local species. After the 4 pm program, there will be a potluck picnic at 5 pm under the oaks 100 yards south of the Nature Center. Pizza, cold drinks and utensils will be provided. Bring an entree, salad, or dessert to share if you can. Both events are free and the public is welcome. To RSVP for the picnic or for information, email [email protected] or John Monsen at [email protected]
