Half Moon Bay Raptorama - Workshops, Walks and Keynote Dinner This Weekend!

Alvaro Jaramillo

Hi folks,

The Coastside Land Trust is putting on the second Raptorama mini festival in Half Moon Bay this weekend. Lisa Myers, Bob Power, Bill Walker, and myself are giving workshops, and many birders leading walks from Sequoia Audubon Society. Dinner and Keynote by Glenn R. Stewart of the Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group. See below for details, and how to sign up. It will be fun, and weather so far looks good although it is too early to be sure. Come out for some great birding, art show, and camaraderie!

Take care,


Alvaro Jaramillo
