Spring Birding in the Laguna Bird Watching Adventures with L


Spring Birding in the Laguna
Bird Watching Adventures with Lisa Hug
Sundays, March 26, April 23, and May 21, 8:30am-1:00pm
Meet at Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
$45 per class. Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org
Geared towards adults and older teens.
 

In this birding series, we will celebrate Spring by exploring a different non-publicly accessible corner of the Laguna each month. In March we will enjoy the wide variety of waterfowl that utilizes the deep channels of the Laguna that the winter rains have brought. During the months of April and May the resident songbirds will awaken and the colorful migrants will arrive from Central America with their vibrant songs. There will be a short PowerPoint orientation the first session. Bring binoculars, (spotting scope optional), a field guide, comfortable walking shoes, layered clothing, water and a packed lunch or snacks. We will end each session with a group lunch and make a list of the species which we encountered.

Lisa Hug originally came to California from the Midwest in 1986. She was very involved with Point Reyes Bird Observatory and eventually became a contract biologist and freelance naturalist in the mid-1990s. She has been teaching for the College of Marin, Petaluma Adult School and Point Reyes Field Institute for over a decade. She was president of Redwood Region Ornithological Society for two years and received the Martha Bentley and Ernestine Smith Award For the Dedication to Wildlife Conservation Education in 2009. She is currently a regional coordinator for the Sonoma County Breeding Bird Atlas and she just finished editing the new Birds Checklist for the Laguna de Santa Rosa which can be bought through the Laguna Foundation Store.

Reimagining Nature: The Development of Ecological Consciousn


Reimagining Nature: The Development of Ecological Consciousness in the U.S. Presentation with Dr. John Smihula
Thursday, April 27, 7:00-8:30pm
Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
$10 (non-refundable).  Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org


"What is the future of environmentalism?” is an urgent question today—and we will address it, as we must. But our focus will be on the past of environmentalism. It did not originate with the founding of the nation, nor did it suddenly burst on the scene with the first Earth Day in 1970; rather, it developed, despite formidable obstacles, as a movement and moral imperative, over time, beginning in the early 19th century and reaching its zenith with the mass of environmental and consumer protection legislation passed in the 1960s and ‘70s. Thus this talk tries to explain, ecologically, why we are where we are. Accordingly, we will contextualize American environmentalism, and its successes and failures, cross-culturally and internationally by considering European antecedents, Native American traditions, and the biocentric perspective of Eastern philosophy. The talk will feature art, poetry, music, a clip from a classic Western film, and a special guest appearance by Godzilla.

John Smihula has a Ph.D. in English Literature and taught literature, film, composition, ESL, and humanities for twenty years at several institutions, primarily the University of Nevada, Reno. A central interest has been ecocriticism and environmental literature, particularly the writings of Henry David Thoreau, Edward Abbey, and Gary Snyder. Dr. Smihula has also worked as a counselor to at-risk youth and to adults in the mental health system in New York and San Francisco, co-shot an ethnological documentary on art and ritual in Melanesia, and produced and directed an award-winning political documentary about the School of the Americas and U.S. foreign policy in Latin America.
