Nine Red Rock Audubon volunteers braved the summer heat to do some volunteer work at Henderson Bird Viewing preserve on Saturday June 22nd. Weeds were pulled, trees were trimmed, aphids were eradicated and trash waspicked up around Pond One. Invasive tamarisk were given the heave-ho around Pond Eight. Visitors enjoy better views and HBVP is looking good thanks to our dedicated volunteers.
While many people visit the Preserve to observe the many species of birds that live there or pass through on their migratory journeys, it is important to remember that other creatures also reside in this habitat. This beautiful California King Snake was spotted slithering around the visitor's center. Mourning Doves on the ground by the birdfeeder stayed a respectful, wary distance away.
