Event Description

Gail Garber, executive director of Hawks Aloft, uses ten years of experience doing bird surveys in the Rio Grande bosque to compare the bosque management strategies of Rio Rancho and Corrales. The differing approaches to management have resulted in differences in biodiversity with implications for Albuquerque. Gail will also highlight the bosque plants that best support wildlife.

Gail Garber is director of Hawks Aloft. She is also an artist and writer who has written three books in another field and published numerous articles, including peer-reviewed manuscripts. Back in 1988, Gail met and fell in love with an educational Red-tailed Hawk. She began working as a volunteer for a local conservation organization and it wasn’t long before she became a staff member writing training manuals, grants, editing their newsletter, etc. However, it was education that was her first love, followed by field research. Today, Gail thoroughly enjoys all aspects of Hawks Aloft, including working in the field studying nesting raptors along the Rio Grande bosque and songbird surveys, working on education programs, and working with a large cadre of non-releasable education birds. Gail has been thrilled to write not only technical papers, but also articles about birds and nature for the general public. In her other life, Gail is a professional quilt maker (Gail Garber Designs) and often travels to teach and lecture methods that she has developed in this media. Her leisure time is often spent outdoors, searching for birds and more birds, but she and her dogs also enjoy the peace and quiet of their mountain home (and the birds).

A short chapter meeting precedes the talk. Native plant books will be on display and available for purchase.
