Audubon Spring Retreat - May 7, 2016
Lytle Ranch

Special field trip to Lytle Ranch in conjunction with a Spring Retreat with the Utah Audubon Council.  We will meet at 7:00 a.m. at the St. George BLM parking lot (345 East Riverside Dr.) and proceed to Lytle Ranch.  After 'Birding' we will return to St. George where the Utah Audubon Council will hold a Spring Business Meeting - 1:00 p.m. at the Tonaquint Nature Center.  This is a great opportunity to find out what Audubon is accomplishing across the State of Utah and its Future Goals. 

So much of what happens in the State of Utah on Wildlife....is decided up north by our State Legislature and at this meeting you will find out the concerns Audubon has about Future Water Projects, Roads Through Critical Habitat, etc. etc. etc.

There will be refreshments for the afternoon break.  Come enjoy a great afternoon and meet some superb people (birders) from Northern Utah Audubon Chapters.
