It's that time of year for our Joint Audubon-Sierra Club Meeting. We will
hear about the Giant Sequoias of the Sierra Nevada, the largest living
things on earth. Their natural history is fascinating and we will look
at the unique qualities that allow them to successfully reproduce and
live to grow so large. Join us for a look at these enduring giants, including
the most recent research.
