Siskiyou Land Trust will host a Valentine’s Day slideshow presentation on Thursday, Feb. 13, at Sisson Museum. Presenter Kendra Bainbridge, local naturalist, biologist and owner of Raven Tree: Wild Bird and Nature Shop in Mount Shasta, will take the audience on a journey into the lives of birds, in celebration of 100 years in bird conservation since the passage of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Siskiyou County has diverse habitats, open spaces and many recorded bird species, according to a press release from the Land Trust. How can we attract these winged gems and keep a healthy environment for all to enjoy? What are the benefits and negatives of feeding birds? What are the natural ways of attracting birds? Since the show falls just a day before Valentine’s Day, Bainbridge will highlight birds that mate for life and share a few delightful surprises for the audience.

Born and raised off the grid in Whitmore, Bainbridge has always had an affinity for “all things nature”. With a Biology degree from Southern Oregon University and support from her family, Bainbridge opened Raven Tree- Nature Shop in September of 2015.

In 2017, Bainbridge travelled to Costa Rica and will share her two-week birding experience there. Many birds have a migration link as well as human-linked losses. Her talk will address a few of these issues and what we can do on a personal level to help, according to the release.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m. A donation of $8 to $15 per person requested, with proceeds benefiting the Siskiyou Land Trust.
