Virginia Lake Nesting Colony
Virginia Lake Island is Reno's only nesting colony for Double-crested Cormorants, California Gulls, and Snowy Egrets.

LAS Screening of The Messenger
LAS's screening of the movie The Messenger on June 9 at the Park Lane Century Theater was quite a success.
Thanks to all who bought tickets and attended. We way exceeded our expectations for ticket sales: 189!! tickets sold, so many that we were upgraded to a larger theater room.
LAS will get a percentage of the proceeds from the tickets sold. More importantly, we are glad that so many got to enjoy this movie that would not otherwise have been shown in Reno.
LAS ELECTIONS 2016-2017
At the May 24 meeting, LAS elected a full slate of Officers and two Board Members.
Jacque Lowery was elected for another term as President.
Brian Steger was elected as Vice President, but in early June had to resign because he is moving away for a new job.
LAS remains without a Vice President. We are looking for a volunteer to step up to fill this vital slot.
If you are interested, contact Jacque Lowery.
Ava Estorga was re-elected as Secretary.
Al Stoess was elected as Treasurer in a rare 2-person race.
Mary Luzier was elected to the Board of Trustees for a 3-year term. Welcome Mary.
