The Audubon Research Ranch needs your help! Please send comments to BOR and BLM urging them to reconsider the O’Donnell Canyon mitigation project. See details below. With enough public comment, we can halt this construction project and turn the agencies towards meaningful steps to protect native fish.
Coronado National Memorial has announced the return of free, ranger-guided programs in the park. Late winter and early spring are ideal seasons to join park rangers fora hike to explore the natural and cultural history of the park. Mild daytime temperatures ensure comfortable hiking conditions in the park’s oak woodlands and mountainous terrain. All programs are free of charge, and no reservations are necessary. Check out the calendar of events: www.nps.gov/coro/planyourvisit/calendar.htm

The event scheduled for the end of February has been cancelled. More info to come when another event is scheduled.
Tour leaders needed for Sunday morning bird walks at the Sierra Vista Environmental Operations Park!
These walks take about 3 hours. You do not need to be a birding “expert” since most of the people who attend know quite a lot about birds and only want the ability to get inside the EOP fence. The main duties are to get people to sign the waiver form, unlock and lock the gates, make sure people stay on the paths, and create a bird list for the tour. Training is minimal and will be provided at your convenience. Please contact Dutch Nagle (email@example.com or 378-7229) if you can help out.
After 15 years as Ramsey Canyon Christmas Bird Count compiler, Ted Mouras will step down.
If you know someone interested in taking over as compiler, contact Ted at firstname.lastname@example.org (phone: 803-0221).
The Programs Chair position is currently vacant, so no upcoming monthly meetings are scheduled. If Huachuca Audubon Society members are interested in organizing monthly programs or other lectures and events, please email has_admin
