Caution: Mule Deer Crossing!

Timothy Taylor shows field trip attendees around the migration corridor

With warm temperatures, sunny skies, and a great turnout, our Mule Deer Migration Corridor Field Trip last Saturday was a big success. Our thanks go to special guest Timothy Taylor – a biologist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife – for sharing his expertise on our local Round Valley mule deer herd and their yearly migration. ESLT’s Executive Director, Kay Ogden, and our two AmeriCorps Members, Ali and Sara, were joined at the event by ESLT’s Lands Director, Aaron Johnson, who discussed the important role ESLT plays in conserving open spaces within the mule deer’s migration corridor. Plenty of deer were spotted over the course of the afternoon: more than twice the number of attendees in our crowd, and we had over 30 people join us!

Thank you to everyone who attended our Migration Corridor Field Trip – you helped make the afternoon memorable and fun. Below is a sampling of some of the great pictures we’ve received. Did you take photos that you’d like to share? We’d love to post them! Please email, and we’ll add them to our slideshow.
