Brookings, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College Curry Campus invites the community to join us on Thursday, February 8, 2024, 12:00 to 1:00 pm for: BIRDS OF THE SOUTH COAST.

This presentation will be given by Tom Bozack, a retired aerospace engineer who moved to Brookings with his wife Linda in 2007. His interest in photography began as a youth living in central Michigan. He has owned several 35mm cameras over the years before switching to digital in 1999. He photographs whatever seems interesting, including wildlife, sunsets, waves, buildings, insects, and of course, birds. More recently, he has photographed birds that he and Linda see on their daily walks, especially at the Port of Brookings-Harbor.

Ann Vileisis, president of the Kalmiopsis Audubon Society, which is Curry County’s locally based bird and wildlife habitat conservation group, will also speak. A life-long bird and nature enthusiast, Ann will talk about our distinctive south coast birds and ways to see and enjoy them. The mission of the Audubon Society is to protect the extraordinary and diverse natural habitats of southwest Oregon including old-growth forests, stunning coastlines, and wild rivers — for birds, fish, wildlife, and future generations.

Tom’s photographs are stunning, and the expertise of the Audubon representative is a great combination.

This is a free program sponsored by the Friends of Curry Campus and will be held in the Community Room on Southwestern’s Curry Campus, 96082 Lone Ranch Parkway (off Highway 101), Brookings. Bring a friend and a brown bag lunch.

Stay tuned for upcoming talks in our speaker series. Talks during winter term will focus on the nature all around us. For more information contact the Curry Campus at 541-813-1667.
