The CTTC Valley Chapter released the following information Aug. 18, 2021 re: their Friday, Aug 20, 2021 meeting at 7:00 PM PDT via Zoom.

With many tortoise species on the decline, it is comfortng to know that with an involved team in place at Joshua Tree National Park, things are turning around! Michael Vamstad, a lead ecologist and biologist with the Natonal Park Service, has been involved with coming up with workable solutons to some of the problems that are facing the wildlife, particularly desert tortoises, in Joshua Tree Natonal Park. We are pleased this month to have him share their program with us.

In his presentaton, he will illustrate some of the problems and challenges facing their local wildlife, and particularly, the desert tortoise. Michael will then show the solutons he and his team have come up with. It is good to know that during these troubling times there are terrific things happening! For an interesting evening with excellent visuals, join us this Friday evening.

Due to a resurgence of the COVID and the Delta variant, we will not be able to meet in person this month – but due to the technology and Zoom, we will be meeting "live" and on-line. Michael Vamstad is happy, too, as he does not have to commute to us from Joshua Tree NP!

See you all this Friday evening!
