Letter to editor: Hawk Watch to continue

Hawk Watch to continue

Over two decades ago, I started the now world famous Ramona Hawk Watch. This because I wanted to preserve grasslands that birds of prey inhabit, which otherwise would have been destroyed for housing.

After seven years of escorting the public to “extreme bird watching,” the program was adopted by the Wildlife Research Institute, which operated the program for the next two decades. They were successful in saving the Ramona Grasslands Preserve.

The WRI recently canceled the Hawk Watch for 2014.

I wish to take this opportunity to inform the public that I and friends will again run the Ramona Hawk Watch until such time as the WRI can see fit to assume control.

Ramona Hawk Watch will meet at the corner of Highland Valley Road and Highland Valley Court in Ramona the first and every Saturday in January 2014 at 9 a.m. Admission is free.

Bring warm clothes, binoculars, note pad and camera gear if you have it.

For more information, call 760-445-2023 or email me at tom@air-superiority.com

Thank you.

Tom Stephan
