In this special kick-off presentation for Sequoia Audubon's Seventieth Anniversary in 2019, we will feature our own rich history, camaraderie, and shared wisdom. With our two marquee Christmas Bird Counts only days away (Crystal Springs and Año Nuevo), come hear some of our most experienced members reminisce about early CBCs in the county, and sharing their birding anecdotes and technical hints about the joy of these annual citizen-science events – and the revelries of countdown dinners. Jaw-dropping rarities, hijinks and comedies, revelries at countdown dinners, and the nerdiness of all the statistics: come out to this first-of-a-kind event. Our annual book sale – and new Sequoia logo gear – will also be available, just in time for your holiday shopping needs.
Gary Deghi, Leslie Flint, and Al DeMartini, all members of Sequoia Audubon for the entire 21st century, are the co-organizers and compilers of the San Mateo county CBCs. Francis Toldi, Peter Metropulos, and Dan Keller have been participating in the local CBCs for more decades than they would like to have recorded in print.
Reminder: there are no meetings/programs in July and August.
The programs for additional meetings will be posted when available. (Topics subject to change.)
