Solvang, CA -

The Wildling Museum and the Guadalupe Dunes Center are excited to present a special opportunity to learn about the diverse shorebird community found on our Central Coast. On Saturday, July 11, 2015 from 9:00-11:00am Dunes Center board member John Deacon will lead a hike exploring the Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve.

This is a great opportunity to see the snowy plover and brown pelican, both of which are featured as species of concern in the Santa Barbara Region within the Wildling's current exhibit Birds in Art. Learn more about the conservation challenges the snowy plover and the brown pelican face by seeing their habitat for yourself.

Class fee is $20. Reservations and payment will be handled by the Wildling Museum; proceeds will be shared with the Dunes Center. Call 805-686-8315 to reserve your spot.

Birds in Art is on view until August 10. The artwork is amazingly diverse: sculpture, watercolor, acrylic, oil, and block prints are included. Species range from across the globe. The Wildling has a printed, free Activity Guide for kids to use while viewing the show that will help them connect to the art better as well as learn about birds! The gallery also includes an art activity station where all visitors can enjoy drawing birds.


The Wildling Museum is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to awaken a passion for nature and wilderness conservation. Exhibitions, programs and events are listed on their website at
