LAS participated as bird guides on the tour buses for the annual Eagles and Agriculture Festival January 28 and 29 in Gardnerville. Jim Woods organized the LAS bird guides for the event.
Carmel Hilton, WildBirds Unlimited, and Alan Gubanich, LAS, gave a joint workshop for the public at Moana Nursery from 10:00 am to noon on “How to Attract Birds to Your Yard and How to Identify Them Once They Are There.” Carmel used feeders and seeds from Moana Nursery to talk about the attracting birds part, then Alan used a Powerpoint presentation to show attendees how to identify their typical (and sometimes untypical) neighborhood birds. About 30 people attended.
The Great Basin Outdoor School scheduled for January 5 and 6 had to be cancelled due to weather. Linda Valle, Mary Luzier, and Becca Serdehely were to present at the event.
