Our Name and Mascot
Lahontan Audubon Society takes its name from ancient Lake Lahontan, an extensive late Pleistocene lake that covered a large portion of the western Great Basin about 12,700 years ago. The only modern remnants of ancient Lake Lahontan that exist today as perennial lakes are Walker Lake and Pyramid Lake.
Anaho Island at Pyramid Lake supports one of the two largest nesting colonies in the western U.S. of the American White Pelican, the bird that Lahontan Audubon Society chose as its mascot and logo. One of the largest birds in North America, with a 9-foot wingspan, the American White Pelican soars gracefully over long distances on its broad white wings edged in black. American White Pelicans use their distinctive large pouched bills to scoop up fish from shallow waters. Over 8,000 pelicans return to Anaho Island each spring to nest. To feed themselves and their young, the pelicans fish the delta of Pyramid Lake for spawning runs of Pyramid Lake fish and also travel over 70 miles from their island nesting colony to fish shallows lakes in Lahontan Valley and Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge.
