    Annual Elections:

    It’s that time of the year again: Elections. No, not the National Election in November, every four years; the chapter officer elections. The management of our chapter is very important. We need good officers so that the chapter flourishes. If you would like to know the responsibilities of these officers, please check on page 5 of the Great Outdoors By Laws.

    There are three officers that are elected to chapter government: President, Vice-President of Outings and Treasurer. The elections will be held at the General Membership meeting on September 25, 2018. Palm Springs is a large and growing chapter and I hope we will continue to elect great officers. 

    Any member who might be interested in serving as one of these 3 officers next year should feel free to offer their name in nomination, or if they prefer, to ask a fellow member to place their name in nomination. All members are encouraged to place other member name(s) in nomination. If you are interested in any of these elected positions, or would like to nominate someone for one of them, please send an email to president-ps@greatoutdoors.org

    Speaker Program:

    Sky Islands And Climate Refugia - Refuge from the Heat in the Mountains of Southern California

    Colin Barrows, Conservation Coordinator at the Friends of the Desert Mountains, Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument.

    The mountains of Southern California rise above the surrounding desert like islands in the ocean. Many unique species found nowhere else on Earth have evolved and flourished on these “sky islands"; but how will these isolated plants and animals adapt to a rapidly changing climate? Some of the unique species of the San Jacinto Mountains are found nowhere else on Earth!

        Big Horn Institute:

        Speaker Aimee Boyd

    Big Horn Institute was founded in 1982, and is a privately funded, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of the world’s wild sheep through research and education.  It focuses on the endangered Peninsular bighorn in southern California and has long been recognized as an official recovery facility for the species. Over the past 35 years, its captive breeding and wild population augmentation program has resulted in the release of 127 bighorn into the wild. More critically, these efforts have kept two local herds from disappearing altogether. The Institute also monitors wild bighorn populations along the southern rim of the Coachella Valley from Palm Springs to La Quinta.
