SoCal birders: Bolsa Chica book signing on April 30

Have you birded at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve wetlands? Enjoyed the nesting, endangered California Least Terns? Spied a Long-billed Curlew and, with joy, punched your birding companion (ahem, Mike)?

A new book focuses on the wetlands' history, and a presentation later this month will give birders a chance to have the author, David Carlberg, sign his "Bolsa Chica: Its History from Prehistoric Times to the Present, and What Citizen Involvement and Perseverance Can Achieve."

At Huntington Beach Public Library in rooms C & D, Carlberg -- who currently serves as president of Amigos de Bolsa Chica -- will give a presentation on April 30 between 7 and 9 p.m. His book "covers a millennia of natural and human forces that eventually shaped Bolsa Chica into the landscape we know today, from the indigenous people who inhabited it for over 6,000 years to the Europeans and Americans who owned it for another two hundred years."

The book's also available for purchase here for $20.
