On the evening of September 16, 2015, the County Board of Supervisors is poised to adopt the Final EIR (Environmental Impact Report) for Mather Field. Their action will pave the way for future development at Mather, including destruction of 36 acres of vernal pools. It will also lay the groundwork for a 1,200-acre vernal pool preserve to mitigate the loss of those pools.
Birding expert Chris Conard is returning to Splash to teach a class on the migrating birds of the Pacific Flyway. September is one of the most exciting times to be in the field with all the waterbirds, raptors, shorebirds, and songbirds touching down. With Chris as your wingman, imagine how much you can learn in this series of three evening lectures and three Saturday field trips!
