Expert Roger Millikan to Discuss ‘The Birds of Lake Los Carneros’

He will explore the techniques used in capturing photos and stories for his new book

The community is invited to “The Birds of Lake Los Carneros,” a lecture by Roger Millikan and hosted by the Goleta Valley Historical Society.

Millikan, a local expert, will delve into the birding opportunities surrounding Lake Los Carneros, known as “birding hotspot.” His informative talk will be based on Millikan and co-author Adam Lewis’ new book, The Birds of Lake Los Carneros.

Millikan will also explore the techniques and photography methods associated with the capturing of the bird images in the book, and the stories attached to the photos. The nearly sold-out book will be available for sale at the event.

The lecture will take place at 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the recently opened History Education Center at Rancho La Patera. Goleta Valley Historical Society members and children younger than 12 get in free and guests are $10.

Rancho La Patera is located at the entrance to the Lake Los Carneros Natural and Historical Preserve, at 304 N. Los Carneros Road in Goleta.

— Dacia Harwood is an event planner and marketing consultant for the Goleta Valley Historical Society.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
