Local Experts to Speak at Main Branch Public Library

There are animals and plants across California that are endangered species; these include wolves, condors, the Alameda Whip Snake, San Leandro Creek’s salmon, and our beloved monarchs. These are just a few of the species experts will discuss at the first California Endangered Species Conference, on May 18th in San Leandro.

With films, visual presentations, games and stories told by representatives from The Friends of San Leandro Creek, Oakland Zoo, Center for Biological Diversity, East Bay Regional Parks and Hayward Area Recreation District, San Leandro residents of all ages will get up-to-date information and learn what they can do to protect our endangered species.

After light refreshments served at noon, local artists will direct a fun youth art party using bring-your-own recyclables as “found art.” Speakers and representatives from local environmental organizations will be on hand to answer further questions and provide more in-depth information.

Organized by local experts, including a certified California Naturalist, the Endangered Species Day Conference is made possible through the generosity of the City of San Leandro.

In addition to those mentioned above, partner organizations include:

Sierra Club, East Bay Chapter, Save Our Snakes, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Contra Costa Climate Leadership, Citizens Climate Lobby, Center for Biological Diversity: Ignite Change.
