Superstition Area Land Trust and Apache Junction Parks and Recreation will offer a lecture about the birds of the Sonoran Desert, especially the ones that can be found locally. It will take place 6:30-7:45 p.m. Thursday, March 24, in room B-117 of the Apache Junction Multi-Generational Center, 1035 N. Idaho Road. The event is free and open to the public.

The presenter — Vera Walters — will discuss the birds, teach attendees their songs and share stories about how the birds get along in this desert world. This is the second lecture to feature Ms. Walters.

An event in February had an overflow crowd and so the organizations decided to bring Ms. Walters back. Ms. Walters has taught birding classes through Central Arizona College, Southwestern Field Studies, Road Scholar, the National Park Service and the U.S. Forest Service, as well as various private organizations. She is a regular volunteer with Lost Dutchman State Park and is a trail steward with the Superstition Area Land Trust.
