Sparrow Identification Class

Aug
27

October 25 & November 1
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

with Mickey Long

The sparrows are seemingly little, basic brown birds with just enough species in our Los Angeles County area (over 20 species) to make them difficult to master. This two-evening class will be geared to the mid-level or more advanced birder who wants more focus on a single group of birds that often give birders trouble.

Gull Identification Class

Aug
26

Wednesday, January 9th 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm (workshop)
&
Saturday, January 12th, 8:00am to noon (field session)

with Larry Allen

Of the roughly 57 species of gull (subfamily Larinae) found worldwide, more than half have been detected in North America. Identification as to species is challenging not only because of the substantial resemblance of many in their adult plumages (particularly the large “white headed” gulls), but also by the near-uniformity of their “juvenal” and “formative” plumages in their first year.

Hahamongna Update: The revised EIR has been released. What happens next?

Jul
31

We need to speak up and tell the Board of Supervisors: Save Hahamongna!

The County Flood Control District has released their revisions to the Final Environmental Impact Report for the "Big Dig" in Hahamongna. The revisions have not addressed our concerns nor changed the size of the project. We need to continue to advocate for a project that is smaller, slower, and safer for the community and for wildlife. More information on the history of the project can be found at savehahamonga.org .

Here are some of the issues:

The purpose of the surveys was to determine species using the property, define breeding birds vs. migrants, determine diversity of species and check for use by any Special Status species.
