GARNA’s Wildness Series – Wildlife: Winter Range Habitat

GARNA’s Nature Series – Winter Waterfowl
Saturday, March 3 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Sands Lake State Wildlife Area

Next time you take a walk around Sands Lake, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to tell your kids and grand kids what types of birds are making Salida their year-round home? Because Salida-area lakes do not usually freeze during the winter, this makes for great habitat for winter waterfowl. Join GARNA and Sally Waterhouse for an introduction to identifying duck and geese species at Sands Lake State Wildlife Area. This program is open to all ages and will be a great activity for kids and families. Please register online at http://garna.org/calendar/winter-waterfowl-3-3-18/.

GARNA’s Nature Series – 2016: A Birding Big Year
Thursday, March 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Buena Vista Community Center

Join GARNA and our Birding Club to learn how Buena Vista resident Christian Hagenlocher took a unique approach to birding’s most well-known competition – the ABA Big Year. In 2016, Christian traveled on a budget from Alaska to Florida to fill in the gaps in his life list of birds, seeing over 750 species in total, becoming the youngest birder to pass the 700 mark. He interviewed birders he met along the way, gathering stories and blogging about his adventures at thebirdingproject.com. Later, Christian traveled the country, teaching people about birds with a focus on engaging young people with birds and photography. Come hear Christian’s stories, see his bird and landscape images, and learn about what birds have to teach us – whether you are a beginner or expert birdwatcher.
