    SB Audubon Evening Monthly Program: Endemic and Near Endemic Birds of Cuba

    This evening our speaker, Dennis Ringer, Emeritus ProEmeritus Professor of Anthropology and American Ethnic Studies at Santa Barbara City College, will share photos and experiences from his 10-day birding/cultural tour of Cuba.

    Dennis retired in 2006 after 37 years of teaching. He took Joan Lentz’s birding class in 2007 and he has been “hooked” on birding ever since.

    SB Audubon Evening Monthly Program: A Bird's Eye View of SW Florida

    Once nothing but swampland and scrubby forests, Southwest Florida has been subject to many environmental challenges. Thanks in part to the National Audubon Society, birds once on the brink of extinction are now protected and can easily be viewed from the Everglades National Park to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, through the 10,000 Islands and into Audubon’s own Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Come enjoy the tales and photos of this remarkably avian-rich corner of the country by educator, writer and guide, Holly Sherwin. Event will be held in Farrand Hall. Doors open at 7:00PM.
