Meetings and Events

April 8, 2017

Our speaker this month will be Shawna Augustine, American Federation of Aviculture Utah State Coordinator, who will present the Avian Biology Classroom Module 2: Characteristics of Life.

Biodiversity on Earth includes a huge number of different species in every type of habitat imaginable.  Currently, there are over an estimated 8.7 million different species on the planet, with around 10,000 of them being avian species. And new species are consistently being discovered. Whether you are talking about a peacock, mushrooms, bacteria, a hibiscus flower, or a gecko, all of these share the same basic characteristics that classify them as “alive”.


Our free meetings are open to the public. Come and enjoy our presentations, conversations with other parrot enthusiasts, snacks, and a donations table to benefit our birds in foster care.

Salt Lake County Complex 2001 S. State, room N1100 (North Building) Salt Lake City (Map)
