Open Public Meetings


Sonora on Wednesday, February 19, 6:30 pm:

Birding in Australia with Steven Umland

Steven will tell us the stories of his recent adventures in Australia, albeit prior to the disastrous wildfires, along with photos of the birds and mammals that he enjoyed during the trip. Australia is, as we know, a land of unique wildlife, with almost half of the bird species being endemic to the continent.

Steven is a long-time CSAS member taking on several important roles, including that of organizer and compiler of the Groveland and Sonora Christmas Bird Counts (reports inside this newsletter). He is quite an owl expert, so time will tell if Australian owls show up in this presentation!


Our monthly Tuolumne County meetings take place at 6:30pm followed by refreshments in the County Library on Greenley Road



Murphys on Tuesday, February 18 at, 6:00 pm:


Owens Lake – Tundra to the Tropics by Rich Cimino of Yellowbilled Tours

The importance of Owens Lake to birds of the Pacific Flyway has become abundantly clear as they have very quickly begun to return as LA’s Dept. of Water Resources is forced to allow some level of water in the lake. Rich will speak to the history and significance of the lake and, of course, to the birds themselves.

Our monthly Calaveras County meetings are moved around the county to enable every community to easily participate. This program will take place at Murphys Diggins Clubhouse, Murphys.

The gates will be open from 5:45pm – 6:15pm
