Unfortunate news from remaining staff at Silver Saddle Ranch & Club
at the desert oasis of Galileo Hill in the Mojave Desert of eastern
* Galileo Hill/Silver Saddle is closed period (to both
non-members and members).
* Galileo Hill/Silver Saddle is for sale.
* No offers on Galileo Hill/Silver Saddle from potential buyers
have been made to date.
* Therefore, the ultimate future regarding birders and Galileo
Hill is yet to be determined and birders are asked not to visit the
site in the meantime.
Since Galileo Hill is written up in ABA's A Birders Guide to Southern
California, feel free to forward this message to those whom you think
should know to help avoid visits by those who might not otherwise be
advised of the closure.
