We are partnering with the Forest Service again for this fun and informative family event. Learn about bird research happening in the area, go on a bird walk with a local bird expert, and see live birds of prey for the whole event as our falconers will be there all day! The event will be at the Taylor Creek Visitors Center in South Lake Tahoe off of Emerald Bay Road and is a part of Wild Tahoe Weekend.
There are more details on the festival main page at this link.
And more details on the festival's free, guided off-site bird walks at this link.
Come out and celebrate Tahoe's native species at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. Part of "Wild Tahoe Weekend." Kids' parade, fish release, food, music, and TINS and other non-profits and agencies will be there to talking about native species.
Learn about birds that migrate to the Tahoe Basin for our beautiful summers from Kirk Hardie. Some birds travel hundreds of miles to nest in the Tahoe Basin, while others spend the winters in the nearby Carson Valley in Nevada and Central Valley in California. Many of our summer visitors our more colorful than our year round resident birds. Come to the talk to learn about which ones. This presentation is hosted by the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center and will be held on the Sierra Nevada College campus, 291 Country Club Dr, Incline Village, NV.
Will is leading a Lee Vining tour on Friday, giving a dragonfly talk on that afternoon, and then co-leading a dragonfly trip on Saturday. Registration for this wonderful event usually opens in mid-April, but there are sure to be spaces available and many great outings to choose from!
This walk is a continuation of Kirk Hardie's talk from Thursday, June 14th at the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center in Incline Village. We will search for many of the summer migrants covered in the presentation that make the Tahoe Basin their homes at Pommin Park next to the UC Davis Tahoe City Field Station. We will meet in the Tahoe City Field Station parking lot, 2400 Lake Forest Dr, Tahoe City, CA. Binoculars are recommended.
A $5 donation is requested to participate in this bird walk.
