August Monthly Audubon Society Meeting: Eco-Tourism in Baja
All monthly Audubon meetings are held at the Pacific Grove Museum on the second Tuesday of the month. All meetings are free and members and non-members are welcome! Doors open at 7:00 PM with soft drinks and cookies provided by MAS hospitality. Monterey Audubon has been devoted to the understanding, conservation and enjoyment of Central California's birdlife since 1943. We strive to connect communities and individuals to the region's avifauna through educational programs and outdoor recreation. As a chapter of America's oldest conservation group we are also committed to advocacy on behalf of native avifauna and ecosystems as well as the implementation of stewardship practices which conserve and restore the Monterey region's precious biological diversity and wildlife.
Join us for an interesting talk on exploring the history, culture and birds of Baja.
Trudi Angell was born in Alta California and migrated to Baja California Sur Mexico in the mid-1970s. First attracted to the peninsula as a kayaker, she spent a number of seasons exploring the coast of the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) between Mulege' and La Paz.
Subsequently, she began the first Adventure Tour Company in Loreto, and over the years has logged more than 3000 sea miles by paddle and sail. In 1986 she visited the mural rock art sites by mule with local cowboys of the region, went home to Loreto, bought a horse and began to explore the canyons and ridges of the major sierras of the peninsula.
