The public is encouraged to attend a meeting sponsored by the Plumas Audubon Society at the Chester Memorial Hall, at the corner of Gay and Stone beginning at 6 p.m., Thursday Aug. 5.

The invited speaker is Dr. Gary Langham, director of Bird Conservation for California Audubon, will give an overview of Audubon’s participation in grebe conservation followed by a discussion of issues relating to grebe conservation at Lake Almanor and Eagle Lake.

The Plumas Audubon Society is working with California Audubon, the Almanor Basin Watershed Advisory Committee, the Point Reyes Bird Observatory, and other groups to continue conservation efforts for grebes nesting on Lake Almanor and Eagle Lake.

Western and Clark’s Grebes are migratory water birds, popular among bird enthusiasts and an integral part of California’s natural legacy.

Lake Almanor and Eagle Lake support more than 25 percent of the Western and Clark’s Grebes that breed in the western U.S., so they are important areas for grebe conservation.

The grebe conservation project includes research on grebe biology and survival, reducing key threats to grebes at each lake, educating the public on grebe conservation, working with agencies and organizations to improve nesting conditions, and monitoring and evaluating the effect of conservation efforts on breeding grebes.
