Yolo Audubon Society will offer a free virtual talk, as part of its monthly meeting, on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m.

Curtis McCasland, Manager of the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex, will give a talk titled Beyond the Scenes on a National Wildlife Refuge: Preparing for Fall and Winter Migrants. McCasland will take us behind the scenes to present what managers, biologists, and technicians do to prepare the wetlands for both the migratory birds and the visitors that come to see them. Participants will learn how the knowledgeable staff work together to provide food, cover, and safety for migratory birds. The staff also considers how the habitat will appear to artists, photographers, and birdwatchers. Colusa National Wildlife Refuge will be the primary focus of the presentation.

The Zoom meeting will be limited to 100 participants. Those interested should register for the event on Yolo Audubon’s website, yoloaudubon.org, or Facebook page, facebook.com/yoloaudubonsociety. Other questions should be addressed to yoloaudu@audubon.org.

Until meeting in person becomes feasible again, Yolo Audubon will offer virtual events to educate and inform the public about birds and birdwatching. More information is available at their website.

Yolo Audubon, a chapter of the National Audubon Society, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to foster an appreciation of birds and conservation in Yolo County.
