General Meetings

Wednesday, February 21, 7 p.m. — Birds of the Chaparral

Celebrate the tenacity and beauty of our often misunderstood mixed and montane chaparral in the Sierra Nevada, the plethora of chaparral-dependent birds and other wildlife, and the important roles that these chaparral-types play in forest succession. Shy birds such as the Wrentit, Green-tailed Towhee, Macgillivray’s Warbler and others have evolved and adapted along with chaparral habitats. We will discuss the processes that support these species.
Christy Sherr is a retired State and National Park Ranger currently working as a Field Biologist and Education Coordinator for the John Muir Project (JMP) of the Earth Island Institute since 2015. Prior to joining JMP she worked with the project as a wildlife surveyor on the Blackbacked Woodpecker Nest Density Study. Christy served as a State Park Ranger throughout California for 20 years, and was a Ranger Naturalist with the National Park Service for 5 years in Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Parks. She is a lifelong birder with a degree from Cal Poly – San Luis Obispo in Wildlife Biology.
