Bay Area Science EventsRichard Neidhardt
The recovery of California Condors from near-extinction is one of the inspiring stories of American conservation. Richard Neidhardt will describe the California Condor Recovery Project’s past and present work restoring populations of this iconic raptor. He’ll also share his personal experiences working as a volunteer with the condor program at Pinnacles National Park.
Richard Neidhardt was born and raised in South Carolina. He grew up on a lake, obsessed with everything that crawled, hopped, slithered, swam or flew. This obsession has stayed with him throughout his life. After a 40-year career as a construction manager/estimator, Richard retired in 2009 and began volunteering with the Pinnacles condor program in 2010. Richard is a board member of the Pinnacles National Park Foundation, and serves as the chair of the Pinnacles Condor Fund. He is also a board member of the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival, one of the largest bird festivals in the nation.
Please note that the topic for the night has changed to California Condors.
