Tulare County Audubon Society has been working with Charlie Fenwick of the USACE at the Lake Success Headquarters to get an Osprey platform built on a power pole near the outflow. In 2016, some of the sticks fell from the Osprey pair's nest (that was built directly on the power pole) and caused a short and a fire.
As of January 31, 2018, Southern California Edison has completed the platform.
Tulare County Audubon Society members, Gary Lindquist and Linda Wentz installed these interpretive signs at Bravo Lake Botanical Gardens in Woodlake, CA. Manuel & Olga Jimenez were instrumental in donating the site and working with the City of Woodlake, which provided the signposts. The bilingual signs were donated by Tulare County Audubon Society. Contributing photographers were Gary Kunkel, Gary Lindquist & Linda Wentz. Spanish translation was provided by Jess Guerrero and Linda Wentz.
As most of you know by now John Lockhart of Visalia passed away very unexpectedly at home on Dec. 8, 2015. He will be, and already is, greatly missed. He was the eBird reviewer for Tulare-Kings Cos., co-owner of the Tulare-Kings Listserv, overseer & keeper of the Tulare Co. bird list, organizer of local CBCs, active in Tulare Audubon and one of the few very active Tulare-Kings Co. birders.
To honor John, his contribution to southern Central Valley birding, and generous spirit, a scholarship fund for youth birding has been set up in John’s name through the Central Valley Bird Club (CVBC).

A note from the Central Valley Bird Club follows:
John was a passionate birder! He enjoyed birding not only with his friends but with new folks that soon became his friends as well. Tony Kurz, as a young birder built his skills under John’s tutelage. John was a dedicated birder and has been instrumental in keeping detailed bird records for both Tulare & Kings counties for 10+ years. He kept track of new bird records in these counties and would let us county birders know of them. John truly embodied the kind of birder the Central Valley needs to further understand the status and distribution of birds of the Southern San Joaquin Valley.
I represent the CVBC and would like to tell you a little bit about us. The Central Valley Bird Club (CVBC) is dedicated to the study of the distribution, status, ecology, and conservation of the birds in the Central Valley (CV). Goals of the CVBC include promoting interest in the CV bird life, providing opportunities to learn more about the birds in the Central Valley, and providing annual scholarships to youth birding camps.
John truly believed in the principles of our club and practiced them with dedication and infectious joy. We would be honored if folks would like to give money in his honor to support our Scholarship program and send young birders to a bird camp.
