Ned Bohman, Outreach Coordinator with the Great Basin Bird Observatory will speak about some of his recent experience volunteering on Southeast Farallon Island, an incredible landscape with much biodiversity. The Farallones are an oasis located in a different type of desert than typically seen in Nevada. Ned will talk about bird migration on the island, seals, sea lions, sharks, whales, salamanders and others.
On the first Sunday of each month beginning January 7th, Lahontan Audubon Society's Field Trip Chair, Lauren Whitenack, will lead bird walks at the May Arboretum. During these 2-3 hour outings, you'll observe different bird species and other wildlife. The Arboretum has more than 13 acres of wetlands, woodlands, and gardens, which make for a great opportunity to view the plethora of birds that call this home.
