“Desert Dwellers”
Sharon Schafer

Discovering Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area. This wonderful nearby area provides users a pristine desert environment experience. Sloan is also home to many beautiful and unique animals. Sharon Schafer, renowned artist and wildlife biologist, will share her knowledge of these animals to acquaint us with our "nature neighbors." Information will also be available on Sloan's new trail systems and petroglyphs.

Sharon K. Schafer has a varied background ranging from painter and photographer, to wildlife biologist and river guide. Now as a full-time artist, she combines two loves - nature and art. Her excellence as a wildlife painter has been recognized by both the international Society of Animal Artists and Artists for Conservation. Throughout the world, Schafer shares her artistic talent and passion for the wildlands by teaching art and nature-related classes and lecturing extensively, and tirelessly, about the stunning beauty and amazing diversity of life on our planet. She earned her degree in Wildlife Management at Humboldt State University, in northern California. Subsequently, she worked as a field wildlife biologist for the Soil Conservation Service, Pacific Gas and Electric, and the Bureau of Land Management.
