Call to Order: 7 p.m.

Our club along with Kerncrest Audubon Society sponsored speaker Tim Shields, founder of Hardshell Labs. Tim, a desert biologist, has 35+ years experience in the field, surveying & observing. He decided to refocus from study only to action. He is established as a leader in threatened desert tortoise population management. Most recently he led development & demonstration projects for HSL’s innovative avian deterrence technologies & processes with leading agencies & corporations involved with desert conservation in southern California including: U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Raven Management Working Group, Desert Tortoise Council, Desert Tortoise Conservancy, Bureau of Land Management & utility companies with power powers in the affected conservation areas.

Hard Shell Lab's mission is to find "humane avian damage control". He described development & showed several deterrence devices he has used in Ridgecrest for Raven deterrence. His talk was animated & interesting with many staying afterwards to ask further questions & see his "tortoise bombs" & drones.

Adjourned: 8:30 p.m.
