Twentynine Palms, CA, September 14, 2012

Society for the Conservation of Bighorn Sheep Camera Coordinator, Bob Burke, will share his knowledge of desert bighorn sheep conservation at the Second Friday Old School House Lecture Series. Bob has organized the SCBS project that has collected more than 300,000 photos by use of infrared trail cameras during a four year study. In the process he has observed many interesting and surprising visitors to water developments created by the Society for the Conservation of Bighorn Sheep. These water developments are vital to nearly every species of desert dwelling animal from desert bighorn sheep to quail, coyotes, even bobcats and mountain lions. Without water, nothing can survive in the desert.
