Saturday, May 19th, 2012
Hi Mountain Lookout, Los Padres National Forest
Brother, son, cousin, biologist, friend, student, teacher, mentor. Mike Tyner dedicated his life to the understanding and protection of nature. He died on November 30th, 2011, while protecting the birds that he loved in Big Sur. Mike graduated from Cal Poly SLO with a degree in Ecology and Systematic Biology in 2003. He got his start in field biology at the Hi Mountain Condor Lookout, and eventually became the field supervisor for the Ventana Wildlife Society’s Condor Recovery Program.
Mike was an avid birder, botanist, naturalist, and a beloved friend to many.  He was a positive and influential force in the world, spreading his love and enthusiasm for nature to all of those that he touched. Mike is gone, but he will never forgotten, especially not at Hi Mountain.  Please come celebrate his life with us on Saturday May 19th at one of Mike’s favorite places…..the Hi Mountain Condor Lookout.
