We also had the opportunity to present “Live from the Wetlands” to educators around California as part of the NOAA Climate Generation Conference. Thank you to Tom Pfeifer and Annie Daw for their assistance giving talks about the Bolsa Chica.
In collaboration with the Huntington Beach Library, Amigos created a video and activities focused on wetlands and birds. Thank you to Karen Belville, Sharon Von Dollen and Jennifer Robins for coordinating this project and to Lauren Fillet for reading and hosting the virtual children’s storytime. As part of the library’s End of Summer Event, Amigos hosted an information and children’s activity booth. Thank you to Jennifer Robins, Karen Belville, Nancy Boyd-Batstone and Sharon Von Dollen for coordinating and staffing this booth that reached over 100 community members.
When we were given the green light we were excited to bring back our in-person Last Saturday of the Month Bird Walk in July and First Saturday of the Month Tour of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve in August. Thank you to all of the Naturalists who resumed their posts: Terry Hill at the Bird Walk, Elissa Warantz, David Lasky, Karen McReynolds, Tom Pfeiffer, Terry Jorris and Sharon Von Dollen at the public Tour. A huge thank you to Jennifer and Jim Robins who continue to coordinate these activities and recruit the Naturalists each month.
