Selden McCabe likes to look at lagoons just like a California gull— from a lofty vantage point that looks down on a panoramic view of the wide expanses of reeds and open water. The only difference is that Selden is able to get his bird’s-eye view while still standing on the ground. With the aid of his fancy drone and high-tech camera, Selden has made an amazing aerial video of the western basins of the Buena Vista Lagoon and the inlet, as well as Buena Vista Audubon’s newly-acquired Wetlands Preserve property. Of course, it also required some expert piloting and videography skills to make this all happen.
Now, thanks to Selden’s generosity, visitors may soon be able to view the video on the Discovery Lab widescreen TV monitor in the Nature Center classroom.
Have you ever dreamed of flying? With Selden’s help, we’ll all be able to experience the visual sensation of soaring effortlessly over the lagoon. What a rush—thank you Selden!
