Join us for a special free author event on March 23 at 7 p.m. in Heron Hall for an evening with John Shewey, author of the new Timber Press Field Guide, Birds of the Pacific Northwest. Highlighting the breadth of this beautiful new book, he’ll present a special program on Birding the Border Country: Lake, Harney, Washoe and Humboldt Counties.

Among the remotest regions in the Western United States, Northwestern Nevada and adjacent Southeast Oregon—the border country—offers outstanding and largely unheralded birding opportunities. Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge (Oregon) and Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge (Nevada) alone offer excellent bird-watching, but these sprawling preserves barely scratch the surface of what this area offers to people who love wild lands and wildlife.

John Shewey is a longtime freelance writer and photographer, and coauthor of Birds of the Pacific Northwest. He has spent decades exploring the border country. At the very real risk of catching John’s infectious enthusiasm, join him for this special presentation celebrating the diversity of the Northern Great Basin, and learn where, when, and how to explore this remarkable region.
