If you’re after birds this year, you can join Dave Shuford (waterfowl, shorebirds), Nora Livingston (all birds), Steve Shunk (woodpeckers), and David Wimpfheimer (all birds) in the field in search of species to add to your life list.

If you’re interested in enhancing your photography skills, you can sign up for seminars with David Gubernick (Bodie photography, macrophotography), Robb Hirsch (fall photography), and Jeff Sullivan (landscapes, Milky Way, moonlight photography), all of whom are adept at explaining camera functions and helping you achieve your photographic goals.

If your New Year’s resolution was to make more art, you can take seminars with Ane Carla Rovetta (pastels), Penny Otwell (oil painting), Andie Thrams (watercolors), and Hannah Hinchman (illuminated field journals), whose welcoming seminars encourage creativity and make art accessible to even the most hesitant.

If you’re interested in the people and cultures of the Mono Basin, take a look at our cultural history seminars led by Terri Geissinger (mining), Lucy & Julia Parker and Ursula Jones (Native American), Richard Potashin & Nancy Hadlock (Basque arborglyphs), and Bartshe Miller (Los Angeles Aqueduct).

If you want to delve into the Mono Basin’s natural history, take a look at Mono Basin Mammals with John Harris, Kristie Nelson’s Butterflies of the Mono Basin & Sierra Nevada, Mono Basin Natural History with David Wimpfheimer, and Malcolm North’s Fire Ecology of the Eastern Sierra, plus several more choices with Nora Livingston.
