Audubon Field Workshop: "Lower Klamath/Tule Lake Eagles" with Bob Power.
Thursday February 6 through Monday, Feb 10th.
Cost: There is no fee for this trip, although guests will be invited to make a donation to SCVAS.
The lower Klamath Basin is a magnet for Rough-legged Hawks, Ferruginous Hawks, Prairie Falcons, Golden Eagles, and of course, Bald Eagles in abundance. While we attempt to identify all birds seen
on this trip, the focus is raptors. We'll see geese in phenomenal numbers, multiple duck species, and often see the first few north-bound Sandhill Cranes. Verna?s Winema Lodge won't last forever.
Lodging: Participants make their own reservations. There are other accommodations in the area, but we're not sure you'll be able
to beat the convenience, dining, price combo of the Winema Lodge, which is ideally situated and puts on a great dinner and breakfast.
Additional information: Participants must be prepared to
either drive a carpool or ride in a carpool on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We will have a maximum of 3 vehicles, 4 guests per vehicle, as we wander around the backroads of the Lower Klamath and Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuges.
Audubon Field Workshop: "Cave Creek Canyon and the Chiricahua Mountains" with Bob Power.
Tuesday May 20 through May 27th.
Cave Creek Canyon and the Chiricahua Mountains are famed for the presence of Elegant Trogon, Red-faced Warbler, Painted Redstart, and the beauty of the sky islands of southeastern Arizona. From our base at the Southwest Research Station of the American Museum of Natural History, we'll explore the varied habitats surrounding the Chiricahuas.
There is an 11 participant maximum for this trip, so sign up early! Fees: $1550/person, double-occupancy. $350 single supplement. Deposit required: $300 by Dec 31st.
Proceeds from this workshop support SCVAS' Education & Conservation Programs.
