Message from the President
We had a wonderful speaker last meeting. Andi Schoenbaum spoke about nutrition. It was very interesting and informative. I’m sorry more people didn’t show up because as a long time parrot owner I learned quite a bit from her presentation. Those 10 people that showed up were very glad they did.
This month we have Judy Lantz from Parrots Naturally, She will be speaking about the survival of 2 parrots that are already in trouble with extinction. She will help us know how we can help individually and as a group.
So come and be informed. Your participation may save the lives of these 2 parrots.
We also have our annual fundraiser Live & Silent Auction coming up on September 27 at 7:30pm. This will be in place of our regular meeting. Admission is free. If you would like to donate product or volunteer your time for the auction, please call:
Don Lake (805) 377-9466 or Sue Rockholt (805) 488-6244.
Ventura County Bird Club invites all to attend a presentation by Judy Lantz from Parrots Naturally.
Judy Lantz, the owner of Parrots Naturally, graduated from UCSB with a Bachelors degree in Analytical Biology and with graduate studies at Cal State Dominguez Hills in Clinical Laboratory Medicine. As licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientists, she and her husband, Bill, opened Warner Medical Laboratory in Woodland Hills California in 1985.
She has a lifelong love for all of nature with a particular interest in parrots. It all started as a hobby in 1981 with the purchase of her first parrot, a yellow-naped Amazon named BoBo. It has developed into Live Oak Aviary where more than 20 species of parrots, many highly endangered, and Parrots Naturally, a parrot resource center and retail store.
Her presentation will be at our next meeting this Thursday, August 30 at 7:00pm at the Ventura Moose Lodge #1394, 10269 Telephone Rd. Attendance is free and all are welcome.
Next month, we will have our Live & Silent Auction on Thursday, September 27 at 7:30. In October we will have a presentation featuring one of the species Judy Lantz has successfully reproduced, the Blue-Throated Macaw. It is one of the world’s rarest species. The club will also hear about recent efforts to reintroduce the Spix Macaw to Bolivia where it was once thought to be extinct.
