May 19th, Sunday, Desert Peaks Section, Annual DPS Banquet: Mark your calendars now for our annual soiree! Join your fellow desert explorers and friends for a wonderful evening. This year we will again enjoy the fine accommodations at The Proud Bird Restaurant in Los Angeles (near LAX). Social Hour and No Host Bar start at 5:30 pm, silent auction items will be available, followed at 7:00 pm by dinner and program. This year we are happy to have Charlie Callagan, who has worked for Death Valley National Park for 22 years, and for the past two years has been the Park’s first full-time wilderness coordinator. The title of his talk is “Death Valley: Wilderness Management for the 21st Century.” The Evening will be capped off by awards. Come join the fun! The 2013 Banquet Flier can be downloaded.
