John Marzluff


Erv Nichols &

Sandra Noll

Erv Nichols and Sandra Noll travel extensively as guides, lecturers, and volunteers for nature. 

Moving to Socorro, New Mexico in 2006, their naturalist work developed out of a fascination with Sandhill Cranes at Bosque del Apache NWR.  Initially volunteers for the refuge, they have returned the past five years as guest speakers and crane workshop leaders for the refuge’s Festival of the Cranes.  For the past 7 years they have also worked as guides and educators for Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary during the massive spring migration staging of Sandhill Cranes along the Platte River in Nebraska.

Last year they were asked to develop a hummingbird program for the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex in California which began a love affair with this tiny bird that has grown to rival their affection for the larger cranes.

Whether from a viewing deck or lecture hall, leading bird walks or canoe/kayak ecotours, Sandra and Erv’s passion connects people with our nation’s special landscapes and wildlife.   

Birds of the Southwest

Mark Larson

Birds, wildlife, and nature have fascinated Mark Larson his entire
life, beginning in the backyard of his first home in the Chihuahuan
desert of west Texas. Since then, he has lived overseas and traveled
widely, always taking note of the natural world around him.
Pursuing his Master’s Degree brought him to Arizona in 1976,
and he has been visiting Southeastern Arizona, México, and Central
America mostly to see birds, ever since.
In the early 1980s, Mark was asked to help with field work for
the book, The Birds of Sonora by Steve Russell and Gale Monson,
published by the University of Arizona Press. That work took him to
all parts of the state of Sonora, from the Sea of Cortez to the highest
peaks in the Sierra Madre Occidental and from the borderland deserts
to the sub-tropical dry forests near the border with Sinaloa, México. He learned in Sonora
that there are many species of exotic montane and subtropical birds that may, someday, make
an appearance in Arizona.
Since 2010, Mark has been the president of the Maricopa Audubon Society in the Phoenix
area. In addition, he has had a long career as an environmental planning consultant and technical
