        Hi,

        BioFest at a Glance (without descriptors - more links below):
        www.valleywild.org/bioregionsfest.htm

        Thanks for your great response to the BioFest as leaders and participants.

        The BioFest this coming this weekend is looking great! This is Kern County's
        biggest birding event each year. The line-up this year is very arguably the
        best.

        The Kenn Kaufman (Friday) and Bob Steele (Saturday) evening dinners and
        programs each have over 100 people signed-up with an expected attendance of
        125-150 each! Do join us for two great evenings of drink, music, food, and
        programs.

        Eagle Optics, Brunton Optics (Jim Danzenbaker), and Wandering Tattler (David
        Yee) will be in attendance.

        Kenn Kaufman lecture, conversation sessions, and book signings.

        Geoff Keller will be premiering the Cornell "Bird Songs of California" CD.

        John Schmitt, Sylvia Gallagher, John Wilson, etc. ,etc., etc...a great
        line-up!

        Since so many of you have volunteered to help lead small group field trip
        sections, only Kenn Kaufman's two birding trips are full. The rest have
        spaces!

        It is not too late to join the party! See list of leaders below.

        Happy & Productive Birding,

        Bob Barnes
