San Gabriel Bighorn Sheep Survey Next Weekend!
The San Gabriel Bighorn Sheep Survey is coming up March 5th-6th and they need volunteers. I have participated in this a couple times and it's not only a lot of fun, but it's great to meet new people. The last time I went out was in 2013 (see my recap here) and I brought in a bunch of gear to test out. I won't be testing a bunch of gear or carrying 57 lbs. in, but I will be having fun, doing research, and hopefully spotting some sheep with my MINOX optics!
You can sign up here to attend. Be sure to include however many will be coming with you. There is a mandatory orientation the evening before where you will sign up for one of the areas. Some are difficult to get to and some are easier. There has been more snow this year than in years past, so be aware of the road conditions. I hope to be able to hike through some snow, spot some sheep, and get some great photos!
Now who is going to come with me?
