Return of the Peregrines: The Fastest Birds on Earth

August 19, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

| Free

Celebrate the return of the Peregrine Falcon to Mount Diablo during this free illustrated lecture with Seth Adams, Save Mount Diablo’s Land Conservation Director who played a pivotal role in reestablishing these magnificent birds of prey, and Sean Burke, Save Mount Diablo’s Land Programs Director and a member of the Peregrine Team. Nearly driven to extinction by the now-banned pesticide DDT, the Peregrine population was in danger once again due to humans hiking, biking and climbing near their nesting area until the Peregrine Team began their work. Learn about the return of the Peregrines and the job of the Peregrine Patrol Team in protecting these birds.
