The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) and the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS) will host the fourth annual Lake Tahoe Bird Festival on Saturday, June 8, 2013. Residents and visitors are invited to attend this free family event from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center, located three miles north of South Lake Tahoe on Highway 89.
The event includes guided bird walks along the Rainbow Trail every hour from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., a bird art contest for all ages, information on migratory birds and spotting scope use, and a presentation by Master Falconer Marie Gaspari Crawford that includes live birds of prey.
Art submissions (photography, sculptures, drawing, paintings, etc.) for the bird art contest may be submitted to Rena Escobedo at email@example.com or dropped off before June 4, 2013, at the LTBMU office at 35 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
In preparation for a Spanish-speaking bird walk at the Bird Festival, the LTBMU will offer Spanish-speaking parents and their children an opportunity to attend an owl survey in May. During this shared nature experience, participants will learn about the history of the Forest Service and the owl survey area. Participants will also learn about possible career choices by attending a night in the life of a wildlife biologist.
Additional participants of the Bird Festival include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and California State Parks.

Q on Q. Quintessential cabin on Quinanetzin with Quality throughout. This thoroughly remodeled chalet represents the epitome of the wow factor. The first impression comes from the privacy & beauty of the surroundings with CA Conservancy land on 3 sides and impressive views of Mt. Tallac. There isn’t an inch of this home that wasn’t lovingly restored or upgraded. The downstairs living area features an open view concept from the slate hearth & wood-burning fireplace to the granite counters of the kitchen and the dining area with a built-in buffet. Hardwood floors and open beam ceilings add to the overall ambiance. Down the hall is a classy guest bath with glass block & stone accents, a guest bedroom and a functional mudroom side entry. The staircase upward is a eloquent blend of slate, log and iron. Both bedrooms upstairs feature vaulted ceilings and scrumptious carpeting. The bath features inviting stone and rustic features. The expansive outdoor deck is a true entertaining joy.
