A compilation of eleven songs that have in common abundant bird imagery. Some of them are taken from previously released CD's, and I thank Rounder, Sugar Hill, Dog Boy record companies, and all the writers and publishers, for letting me use these cuts on a royalty-free basis for this worthy fund-raiser. The beautiful artwork on the cover was painted by Debby Cotter Kaspari, former banjo-player with the SF bay area's All Girl Boys. In addition to the previously-released material, I recorded two more songs especially for this CD.
Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) is a non-profit organization that owns and operates three nature preserves in Marin and Sonoma Counties, California: The Bolinas Lagoon Preserve in Stinson Beach, the Bouverie Preserve in Valley of the Moon and Cypress Grove Preserve in Marshall.
Each year more than 22,000 people visit the Bolinas Lagoon Preserve during its open season from March to July. Resource management research and environmental education programs are conducted throughout the year. Last year, more than 3,000 school children learned about the preservation of the immediate area's habitats and the biology of its flora and fauna. The Bolinas Lagoon Preserve is currently looking for volunteers who would like to be trained to lead these programs. - Laurie
