TULARE TAPPINGS

Greetings Tulare Kings Bird Enthusiasts,

As the Central Valley moves into Summer, the Tulare Kings Audubon Society Board is planning some exciting Fall events.  Watch for meeting announcements here and in future Tappings. 

2021 Speaker Meetings

September: Date & location TBA

“Swainson’s Hawk”

 

Rob Hansen, recently retired College of Sequoias biologist, will present a talk and lead at least one field trip to see roosting Swainson’s Hawks.  Details will be released in August.

 

October 30th:  Kaweah Oaks Preserve, times TBA

“Kids in Action”

 

A Saturday morning of events for kids interested in learning how they can become more involved with other kids in local environmental projects. This will be a morning planned for and organized by kids from several county communities.  Details will be announced in September.

When in-person speaker meetings resume, they will be preceded by a no-host dinner at Marie Callender’s (Mooney at HWY 198) at 5:15 pm, 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.

If you would like to suggest a speaker or would like to volunteer to be a speaker at one of our meetings please contact us through the website by clicking here.
