      As recently as 100 years ago, Tulare Lake was the largest lake west
      of the Mississippi. Water diversions caused the lake to dry up and
      farmers moved in to farm the former lakebed. Now in its 5th year, the
      Bureau of Land Management's Atwell Island project just north of Kern
      County in neighboring Tulare County is restoring valley grassland and
      alkali sink habitat to a 7000 acre portion of the former Tulare Lake
      bed. Join in as Atwell Island project manager, Dr. Steve Laymon,
      tours participants through restored habitat, home to several listed
      and sensitive species.

      An added feature of this field trip will be the impressive evening
      fly-in of 1000s of SANDHILL CRANES at nearby Pixley National Wildlife Refuge.

      Happy & Productive Birding,

      Bob Barnes
