Gray whales discussed at lecture
The Valley of the Moon Nature Lecture series returns with “The California Gray Whale: The Most Ancient Baleen Whale Alive Today,” on Thursday, Nov. 1, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building, 126 First St. W.
The guest speaker will be Sue Arnold, chief executive officer of the California Gray Whale Coalition.
The future of the gray whale depends on the health of the world’s oceans. As a keystone species of the Arctic, their survival is intimately linked with the health of the planet. The gray whale is an environmental and economic treasure annually seen in November along the Sonoma Coast. Join the discussion to learn more about the survival of this magnificent creature.
