8:05-9:00 p.m. / Gardens at Heather Farm (Camellia Room), Walnut Creek, CA


Join naturalist Juan-Carlos Solis on an armchair adventure along the Baja peninsula and meet some of the region’s most amazing birds and wildlife. Baja can be defined as a long sliver of desert surrounded by sea. Ironically, despite its harsh geography and lack of fresh water, Baja is a hotspot for birds and wildlife. To the east, the Sea of Cortes alone has its own endemic gull, the yellow-footed gull, and a place where one can often find flocks of petrels or boobies feeding along blue whales, pilot whales and pods of common dolphins.
