Adopt-A-Highway cleanup

Friday, August 11

As many of you know CSAS has adopted a stretch of Highway 120 overlooking Lake Don Pedro in order to keep it clear of garbage, and we do that once every other month. Our next Adopt-A-Highway cleanup will be on a Friday, August 11th, and we invite you to join us for a pleasant social couple of hours.  Meet at Perko’s in Sonora at 7:00 am to carpool to the Lake Don Pedro Vista parking lot at the west end of the bridge. You probably know that the vista point is filled with Caltrans machinery and equipment as they work on the bridge, but that’s not a problem for us to do our clean-up. We will be starting at 7:30 am and be finished by 9:30.  If weather is in doubt, call Tom Harrington at 694-8564 before 6:30 am.

Fall Bird House Sale

Saturday in October (date to be announced), 2017 — 9 am to 12 pm

Central Sierra Audubon Society (CSAS) will join the California Native Plant Society in Jamestown for our annual sale of bird boxes, books and other birding articles. It’s never too early to start building a birdhouse, bat house or bird feeder to donate to the sale. For wood and/or plans, call Tom Harrington at 209 694-8564. We also will need volunteers to help with the sale, which has been held in Rocca Park on Main Street. The hours will be between 9am and 12pm. Location confirmation and date will be available by March 2017. Members will be on hand to offer advice on the siting of bird boxes and on bird feeders and suitable foods, so if you have any questions related to birding, come and ask the experts!
Sales of bird houses is one of our major sources of income to fund natural science college students as they go off to face increasingly burdensome tuition fees. We are proud of our increasing investment in local students who have a purpose beyond money-making.
