Ed Pandilfino Author of "Birds of the Sierra Nevada" Seminar April 26

Calaveras Big Trees State Park, CA ... An early morning guided bird walk through the Sequoia trees followed by a seminar on birds of the Sierra Nevada will be held this Saturday in the state park. Ed Pandilfino, author of the new UC Press book "Birds of the Sierra Nevada," will lead the seminar between 10 a.m. and noon Saturday April 26 at historic Jack Knight Hall. Those who want to start early are encouraged to join Pandilfino for a walk to take a look at local birds beginning at 8 a.m....



Pandilfino is president of Western Field Ornithologists, and regional editor for the publication "North American Birds." For the past 25 years he has devoted his life to working in habitat conservation and avian research. His new book contains excellent discussions of birds of the Sierra, both biology and distribution, as well as excellent illustrations.

The seminar is free, but there is a day use fee per vehicle to enter the state park.

Participants are encouraged to make a day of it: start with the bird hike, attend the seminar, and the enjoy a picnic lunch and explore the 6,000 acre state park.

The program is provided as part of the educational programs of the Calaveras Big Trees Association, the non-profit that provides the free seminars at the park.Four more seminars are planned this year including: "John Muir in the Big Trees," by Michael Wurtz, May 3; "The Sequoias of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks," by Steve Stocking, June 7; "Going Batty," by bat expert Dr. Dave Johnson, Sept. 20; and "Conservation of Native Bees," by Julie Serences.

The Calaveras Big Trees Association is an independent non-profit organization that raises money to support educational and interpretive programs in the state park.
The organization's web site is located at www.bigtrees.org.
