Science and Ideas Group

Lake Merritt: A Green Refuge In the Heart of 450,000

Clayton Anderson

Talk summary: Using a PowerPoint presentation, we'll talk about the history how the current “Lake” Merritt came to be, cover some of its wild inhabitants, and talk a little about its current state.

Clayton Anderson  is a Naturalist working in the field of Environmental Education for the past 15 years. Enchanted by the natural world and its history since he was a boy, becoming a Naturalist was a dream come true. After graduating from San Jose State University, he landed his first job as a Naturalist with Love Life Environmental Education Program. Since then, Clay has worked for several environmental concerns include California State Parks, East Bay Regional Parks and Alameda Resource Conservation District. He currently works for the Golden Gate Audubon Society as the Youth Program Manager. When he is not introducing the youth to the magic of nature, he enjoys birding and creating art. Whether speaking through a microphone or painting with a brush, Clay loves his work and is always looking to promote and educate others about the wonders of the natural world and its cycles.
