Annual Membership Meeting

Bighorn Institute’s Annual Membership Meeting was held February 6th via Zoom. We talked about our accomplishments in 2020, plans for 2021 and elected the Board of Directors. We are thrilled to announce and extend our warmest welcome to our newest board members, Danielle Cane and Sylvia Ender! Both are passionate about animals and the Institute’s mission so we look forward to having their help and support in our endeavors. We want to thank everyone that was able to join us for our meeting!

Lamb Update

It’s been a busy month for fieldwork with lots of new lambs a leaping in our local mountains. We’ve seen at least a dozen lambs in the San Jacinto Mountains near Palm Springs and already ten to fifteen lambs in both the central and northern Santa Rosa Mountains (La Quinta area and Palm Desert/Rancho Mirage area, respectively). Lambing season extends through June and many more ewes should give birth in the coming months so we’ll keep tracking them and see what we find! St
