When it comes to nature in Oakland, some of the first things that come to mind are pigeons, geese, and weeds, weeds, weeds. How did these things get here, and why are they so darned successful? Though these hardy plants and animals can cause quite a bit of frustration, they have fascinating life histories and survival skills that are well worth learning about. We’ll focus on the “unloved” nature at Lake Merritt, and spend some time appreciating the flexibility and innovation of these species.
