Park steward to talk tonight about coping with California's climate

Tuesday evening lecture starts at 7 p.m. in the Robert Livermore Community Center

Ranger Lewis Reed, steward of the Bodega Marine Reserve, will talk about California's climate and outdoor opportunities at a free public lecture tonight at the Robert Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Ave.

The lecture, "Boom or Bust: Coping with California's Dynamic Climate," is being hosted from 7-8:30 p.m. by the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District (LARPD).

The presentation will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Robert Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Ave.

Even with one of the driest winters ever recorded in California, coping with drought and its consequences is important. The same mild winters and warm, dry summers that have attracted so many people to this state have shaped the evolution of many unique species that are found nowhere else on earth.

Reed will discuss how plants and animals have adapted to the state's our variable climate and how people can adapt to it as well.

Then at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 12, the LARPD will sponsor its annual Breakfast with Bunny, also at the Community Center. Children can hop along a trail outside to find breakfast items such as cereal, fruit, granola bar and yogurt, then go with their families back inside to enjoy coffee, hot chocolate, milk and juice.

Children will also have opportunities to make crafts during the event. Families can bring a basket if they like and a camera to take photos with the bunny. Tickets are $8 and must be purchased in advance by calling (925) 373-5700 or in person at the Community Center.
