Each month we'll let you know dates and destinations by email and on Facebook. The very best way to know what events are occurring is to sign up to get our announcements...
We won't overwhelm you as we only send 2-3 emails a month to announce new events as they are known.

The leaders will contact you about the specific walk meeting locations. 
Hope to see you out there!

Seminar: Hummingbirds
with Dan Gleason

Sun., June 4 – 4:30pm & Mon. June 5, 5:30pm

Which hummingbirds do we have here?
What strategies do they use to survive in sometimes difficult situations.

Join us in June as Dan Gleason examines the lives of hummingbirds, from which species are in our area
to details about their lives and strategies for survival.
 
We all love hummingbirds and are fascinated by their amazing flight abilities. Their brilliant, iridescent colors make them stand out, despite their small size. Hummingbirds may seem small and fragile, but many are surprisingly hardy and live 10-12 years. There are over 330 hummingbird species, all found only in the Americas. Come to our presentation on hummingbirds and learn about their variety, their diet, how they fly and much, much more. You will be amazed by the many unique adaptations and find hummingbirds even more fascinating than you imagined.
 
Dan Gleason, co-owner of Wild Birds Unlimited, is a biologist who spent 30 years on the faculty of the department of biology at the University of Oregon.  While there, he taught the field ornithology course, a senior and graduate-level course about birds and bird biology. He has assisted many non-profit organizations, sch as the McKenzie River Trust, Cascades Raptor Center, and Lane County Audubon Society, leading field trips and assisting with education. He has held various board positions with Lane County Audubon Society, Oregon Field Ornithologists (now Oregon Birding Association), and the Eugene Natural History Society. Dan has been a frequently-invited speaker at bird festivals and nature-oriented organizations across the Pacific Northwest.
