Next General Meeting
Join us for our next General Meeting! It takes place Monday, October 21, 2019, starting at 7 p.m., at the Centennial Museum, corner of Wiggins and University, on the campus of the University of Texas at El Paso.
Our speaker will be Geoff Wiseman, and his subject will be Birds of the Indio Mountains Research Station.
Indio Mountains Research Station Jerry Johnson
Geoff is a Park Ranger at Franklin Mountains State Park in El Paso. He will present some of the findings from research he conducted as a graduate student in the Biology Department at UTEP. During the period 2012-2014, he conducted a comparative survey of the avian species of far west Texas. This survey was conducted in a Chihuahuan Desert scrub landscape on Indio Mountains Research Station (IMRS) in Hudspeth County, Texas. There had been no previous formal studies of the avifauna at IMRS. All prior species accounts or sightings had been from casual sightings. He will also revisit observations made of Elf Owls (Micrathene whitneyi) during this period.
El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon meets on the third Monday of the month from September through May, except in December when we meet on the second Monday. We do not meet in June, July or August.

The El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society. We have a large territory, all of Texas west of the Pecos River ("Trans-Pecos"). Our members are found throughout the Trans-Pecos, but most live in the region's largest city, El Paso. Birds, birding, wildlife, the environment, and our community are the concerns of the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society (EP/TPAS).
