We look forward to continuing our work with the Conservancy, and helping to fulfill the goals of this remarkable endeavor in preserving Tejon Ranch for generations to come, including my 4 and one half year old grandson.” said Garry. “My husband and I bird watch around the world to add to our life list of over 7,000 species, but always look forward to birdwatching trips on Tejon to see Condor, golden eagle, Lewis’ woodpecker, Hermit warbler and other rare species of birds in California.”
