All About Ojai: Environmental Learning Series

Ojai Meadows Preserve Bird Walk with Jesse Grantham

May 13, 8:30 – 10:30 am

Western Bluebird

On Saturday May 13, join bird expert Jesse Grantham, retired head of the USFW Condor Recovery Program, for a very special spring bird walk at the Ojai Meadows Preserve. Participants will learn to identify Ojai’s many feathered friends, where to look for them, how to plan a habitat within the home landscape, and also gain valuable information on birding supplies, binoculars, and publications.

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy (OVLC) acquired the Ojai Meadows Preserve in 2000 and over the last seventeen years has worked to restore the former weed-choked parcel to its original state as natural wetlands. Today over 180 bird species have been seen at the Meadow, some calling it home and others just using it as a resting spot during migration.

Meet at the kiosk entrance by the turnout on highway 33 next to Nordhoff High School. This is an easy 2-hour walk on uneven ground so wear sturdy shoes and bring water and sun protection. OVLC will provide some binoculars but please bring your own if you have them.

This All About Ojai event is free to members & students and $10 for non-members. Become a member today! A family membership is just $35 per year. Register below or contact Marti Reid at (805) 649-6852 ext.2 or
