The Club combined their October meeting with the Kerncrest Audubon Society's on their regularly scheduled meeting night Thursday, November 8th. Dr. Daniel Leavitt, a biologist for the Environmental Management Division at the China Lake Naval Base was the guest speaker.
Dr. Leavitt talked extensively on the wildlife & tortoises living on Base property. The power point presentation included pictures of ravens & their impact. An important piece of advice to help reduce the large population of ravens in this area is to verbally chase away the birds when they are feeding on garbage at dumpsters. Ravens are known to avoid those areas if they are scared away.
After the engaging lecture & answering questions from the audience, Dr. Leavitt gave us his email address for any more questions we might like to ask him. His email is: [email protected]
We enjoyed the opportunity to join with another group & hope to share in other programs in future.
