Salem-based author and photographer John Shewey discusses 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 birding opportunities. Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge (Oregon) and Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge (Nevada) alone offer excellent birdwatching, but these sprawling preserves barely scratch the surface of what this area offers to people who love wild lands and wildlife. At the risk of catching John’s infectious enthusiasm, join him for a special presentation celebrating the diversity of the Northern Great Basin, and learn where, when, and how to explore this remarkable region. A book signing will follow.
