2019 Speaker Meetings
Please be aware of changing meeting sites until we find a permanent meeting room.
Thank you for your patience.
We meet on the third Friday of each month at 7 pm. We meet for a no-host dinner at Marie Callender’s on Mooney at HWY 198 at 5:15 pm prior to the meeting, where you can usually meet the speaker. The first part of the meeting is business and usually lasts 15-20 minutes. The second part of the meeting includes a presenter on a conservation topic or photo presentation, open questions, and refreshments. We meet only during the school year (September - May) and we do not have general meetings in December and January.

We will no longer be meeting at the Tulare County

Friday Speaker Meeting
John Rowden - Plants for Birds
Join Tulare County Audubon Society and Alta Peak Chapter of California Native Plant Society for an evening with John Rowden, National Audubon Director of Community Conservation. He was previously on the curatorial staff of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo Dept of Ornithology. He will present Audubon’s recent initiative to improve communities all over the country by providing birds with shelter, safe passage and places to raise their young. John will summarize the benefits that native plants provide to birds and explore the resources Audubon has developed to support the planting of natives, with a particular focus on Tulare County. Planting native species is something everyone can do that can have tangible benefits for birds.
Our meeting will be at the Tulare County Office of Education located at 6200 S Mooney Blvd, Room Redwood G from 7-8:30pm. It is south of Mooney Grove Park. We apologize for the change in meeting places and hope you will find time to learn more about ways to help the survival wild of birds. No host dinner at Marie Callender’s at 5:15 pm where you can usually meet the speaker.
