About our Speaker
Louise is the originator of Strictly for the Birds, in Eureka, which she ran until 2004. The store was then under the care of Cathy Michaels for another 12 years until she retired and closed the doors in Dec. 2015. Birding was a natural for Louise as she describes herself as “inheriting the bird loving gene from my grandfather.” Birds were prominent in her life at the age of 9. A “Bird Club” was Louise’s first birding enterprise. Dues were 5 cents! Many years have passed but Louise still loves and pursues birds.
