  Field Trips & Meetings
  • Field Trip: Saturday April 14: Lytle Ranch - meet at the BLM at 7:00 a.m. We will be able to see many of the spring migrants and our resident favorites - Phainopeplas.  On our way to Lytle, we will make a quick stop at the Shivwits Gas Station (around 7:15ish) if you want to meet up with us before proceeding to the ranch. Should be a great field trip.

Marilyn Davis

It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of Marilyn Davis.
She will be remembered for her ever positive attitude and her
true love of her home town and its people. She treasured Red Cliffs
 Audubon and, along with her husband, Keith, founded the
organization in St. George. She especially enjoyed working with
the youth and teaching them to love birds and nature as much as she did.

 Marilyn was instrumental in organizing the St. George Winter Bird
Festival and loved the bird art work submitted by children from
 the local schools.  She was a gifted artist herself.  Participating
in the Red Cliffs Audubon monthly field trips, where she could
gather with other birders and "talk birds", was a treat for her. 
She loved to volunteer and would help anyone who asked.

Her weekly Senior Sampler bird articles were fun and informative
and an easy way to convey her passion for conservation.  Marilyn
was always worrying about the disappearing habitat.  Her last
wishes would include a plea for everyone to take care of her
 birds so she doesn't have to worry.

We're sure she will miss seeing her many, many good friends
as much as they will miss seeing her. Our sympathy
 to Keith and his wonderful family for their loss.
