Pueblo Park is a 60-plus acre linear park, located in the master-planned Summerlin North community. This hidden gem incorporates the natural beauty of a desert arroyo, with a wide variety of habitats, from grass to large trees to desert scrub

 

Meet at the parking lot at the east end of the park near the restrooms (entrance off of Lake Mead, just west of Buffalo).

 

What to expect while birding with us:

Expect taking time to listen and observe not only what kind of birds we see but also their behavior. We will take our time exploring the different habitats in the park. Don't forget to bring water, sun protection and binoculars if you have them.

Why we like birding:

We have always enjoyed being outdoors, but birding has led us to experience our community with new eyes. There are so many things to see that can easily go unnoticed, especially in the residential areas we inhabit everyday. We have enjoyed getting to know new people, and the variety of places to explore around the valley. We like that birding is a hobby that can be accessible to all ages, and that you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it- there is always more to learn! Birding easily aligns with or can be a springboard to many other hobbies, such as gardening, drawing, photography, journaling and hiking. We are both continuing to learn more about local conservation efforts and ways that we can help make our community more bird friendly!

 

How we ended up birding together:

We started birding as a fun activity to do together as mother and daughter after caregiving for several years. Mary went to a bird walk event with a friend and then invited Natasha to go to another event the following weekend. Being outdoors, while learning something new, has been a great way for us to spend time together. Right away, we became RRAS members and then started the ambassador program in March. We both love that the mission of Red Rock Audubon Society goes beyond birds and considers other best practices for wildlife and conservation in Southern Nevada.

 

About us:

Mary is a lifelong resident of Las Vegas, enjoying retirement after a 30-year career with the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, which culminated with serving as the Youth Services Manager.

 

Natasha is a Las Vegas native and works at a local nonprofit as Director of Development.

 

Besides birding, we both enjoy gardening, reading, travel, our rescue pets, and spending time with friends and family.
