Wildlife of the American West – Brent Paull
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 7:00 – 8:00 PM
at The Terraces
Bear “From the bears and elk of Yellowstone to the Vermilion Flycatchers of Morongo Valley, from the bobcats and kit fox of the San Joaquin Valley to the snow geese of Bosque del Apache and the northern harriers of Utah - we live in a wildlife mecca that gives us access to some of the greatest, most beautiful creatures that walk, fl y, or crawl across this globe.” This has been the photographic view of Brent Paull for 32 years.” Once a freelance photographer, Brent now leads photographic safari tours. He will share with us some of his wildlife photography from throughout the country.

Alaska from the Sea Wolf – Patty Biasca and Bob Anderson
THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 7:00 – 8:00 PM
at The Terraces
The Sea Wolf On a converted WWII wooden mine sweeper (now called the Sea Wolf) Patty Biasca and Bob Anderson explored Alaska’s Inside Passage from Juneau to Ketchikan encountering orcas, humpback whales, bears, and other Alaskan wildlife. The trip format, which used kayaks and a skiff to leave the boat daily, allowed intimate views of nooks and crannies not seen by the average cruise ship passenger. This talk will give some of the fascinating history of the Sea Wolf and share pictures and experiences encountered along the way. Patty and Bob have been enjoying outdoor adventures for most of their adult lives, the last 25 or so years exploring together through backpacking, river rafting, kayaking, and hiking in some of the world’s most beautiful and out-of-the-way places.
