BCAS Annual Dinner

Wednesday, June 20, 6:00 p.m., Remington's Restaurant, Bridges Golf Course, Montrose: Mark your calendars for the annual BCAS dinner at Remington's Restaurant.  Our speaker this year will be Chris Parish, Director of Global Conservation with The Peregrine Falcon Fund in Arizona, who will talk about the recovery of the California Condor, including the effect of lead poisoning on their decline.  California Condors have come back from the brink of extinction through heroic efforts in captive breeding and systematic release back into its former range.  Condors are wide ranging and have been seen on ocassion in Colorado, something that we hope will happen more often in the future.  More details to come in the next newsletter.  Reservations are required for the dinner by June 10.  Click here for the reservation form.

 

Black Canyon Audubon Society Annual Dinner

 Wednesday, June 20, 6:00 p.m.

We will be gathering at Remington’s Restaurant at The Bridges Golf Course in Montrose.  This year’s annual dinner will include a delicious meal and a talk by Chris Parish of the Peregrine Fund, who will give an illustrated talk about bringing the California condor back from the edge of extinction.  This is America’s biggest bird and has been returned to the wild in Arizona and California.  It sometimes makes its way to Colorado.  Chris has taken great photos of condors released into the wild.

This is our annual opportunity to raise funds through our silent auction.

Please join us for a fun and relaxing evening!
