Holiday Potluck Candlelight Dinner and Program, December 2nd, 6pm


The December 2nd meeting is also our annual Holiday potluck candlelight dinner, held at 6pm in the dining room of the White Mountain Research Center.

Do plan to attend as it is a fun event, and bring a friend or neighbor! Every participant should bring a dish (entrée, salad, or dessert to serve at least 6 people, and contribute either juice, soft drinks, wine or beer to the beverage table to share with all.) We often run out of food, so we would appreciate contributions of larger portions so there will be sufficient food for everyone. Please bring your own place setting. Audubon will provide coffee, tea, juice, and a touch of wine prior to the dinner. Also, we encourage you to focus on main dishes and salads rather than desserts, so we don't run out. Arrive by 6pm for our potluck dinner. 

The dinner will be followed by a program at 7pm:

Birds of the Amargosa

Hi Eastern Sierra Audubon members. I'm Len Warren from Shoshone, California. I have been studying the birds of the southern portion of the Amargosa River since 2009. On December second I'd like to share with you some of my photos, films, and experiences. My presentation, Birds of the Amargosa, will introduce the area and its birds. If you are interested, my Blog site is or just google "Birds of Shoshone" and it should come right up. I'm looking forward to seeing you.
