May CreekSpeak: Wildfires, Grazing, and Birds in the Putah Creek Watershed

 Registration is closed for this event
Thursday, May 16, 7PM Winters Community Library Parsons Room

Join Putah Creek Council's first CreekSpeak talk of 2019 on Thursday, May 16, 2019. 

Just west of Winters, Audubon’s Bobcat Ranch has experienced multiple wildfires in the last five years – beginning with the Monticello fire in 2014. The property also is home to grazing cattle and bird research projects, a combination that sets the stage for interesting scientific revelations. Avian ecologist and UC Davis doctoral candidate Frank Fogarty has been studying the effects of the fires and cattle activity on Putah Creek’s bird communities in the aftermath of the Cold (2016) and Winters (2017) fires. Join us at this event to hear his findings and learn about how these fires have long-term and long-distance effects on local bird populations.

The presentation begins at 7pm at the Winters Community Library Margaret Parsons Room (708 Railroad Ave, Winters).

The talks alternate between Davis and Winters on the third Thursday of the month*. Additional talks in 2019 will include:

*The July presentation will be on the third Wednesday to avoid conflict with the Winters Summer Concert series.
