During the month of July Clark County Wetlands Park visitors were treated to a display of stunning photographs from the 2018 Audubon Photography Award winners. The exhibit sponsored by Red Rock Audubon featured photographs taken by amateurs, youths and professionals.
Each photograph was accompanied by a description by the photographer, completing the story of the bird and photographer. What could go wrong while wearing your waders approaching a Wood Duck in a frigid pond during a light snow? How does a huge Great Gray Owl balance itself on a tiny branch?
Visiting Mount Charleston in the summer is always a good Idea. You can see many birds and plants, take in some fresh mountain air and enjoy noticeable relief from the Vegas valley heat.
Visiting Mt. Charleston in the company of John Hiatt, Red Rock Audubon's Conservation Chair, takes that experience to a different level. John graciously led 22 members and guests on a memorable walk through the lower part of the Mary Jane Falls trailhead and along Deer Creek on July 13th. You learn a lot about natural and human history any time you are around John.
