Spring Bird House Sale

Saturday in April, 2018 — Check later for firm date and place

Central Sierra Audubon Society (CSAS) will join the California Native Plant Society 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 spring sale, which has been held in the past in San Andreas. The hours will be between 9am and 12pm. 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.

Adopt-A-Highway cleanup

Friday, November 17

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. The Audubon club does this once every other month. Our next Adopt-A-Highway cleanup will be on a Friday, November 17, and we invite you to join us for a pleasant social couple of hours.  We 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 one-half hour after meeting at Perko’s and be finished with two hours.  Rain will cancel, but if weather is in doubt, call Tom Harrington at 694-8564 before 6:30 am.
