The Sea & Sage Library of Nature Slides & How to Order Them
Attached to this section of the web page is the 2003 catalog of the Sea & Sage Audubon Society's Library of Nature Slides. Since the 1997 catalog was published, we have added about 5000 new slides, thanks especially to the efforts of James R. Gallagher, who is personally responsible for most of our best slides. We now have over 18,000 slides, representing 604 species of birds and 125 species of mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
Because of the large number of slides in the Library, we are unable to give specific information about each slide in this catalog. Please feel free to ask for more information about any subject before ordering. Better yet, make an appointment to come and look at the slides. Questions should be directed to Sylvia R. Gallagher, 21562 Kaneohe Ln., Huntington Beach, CA 92646; phone (714) 962-8990. Since she is sometimes away for extended periods, if you do not get a response within ten days, call or write directly to Sea and Sage, P.O. Box 5447, Irvine, CA 92616-5447; phone (949) 261-7963. Orders usually take 4 to 6 weeks to fill. Initial correspondence could add an extra 2 weeks. Rush orders cannot be filled. If you need slides in a hurry, consider borrowing from our lending library. (Select the Slides for Loan links on this page.)
If you are unable to come and look at the slides, we will be happy to select appropriate slides for your purposes. Consider first the nature of the intended audience.  Some slides are better for showing particular field marks, while others may be more pleasing aesthetically and thus better for a general audience.
Then describe specific plumages (subspecies, color morph, age, sex, season, etc.), field marks, poses, activities, habitats, behaviors, or anything else you consider important. For each species we'll select the slide(s) which come closest to your needs. If you do not fill in this information, expect to receive a picture of the bird (or animal) in the most colorful plumage, the most typical habitat, and the position which portrays the largest number of characteristic field marks that we have in our collection.
If you are looking for particular features or behaviors, but are not particular about the species exhibiting them, those requests can also be filled.
Sea & Sage is unlike other slide sources in that OUR PRICES ARE LOW AND WE DO NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR SPECIAL REQUESTS. In fact we encourage you to be as specific as you can about your needs.
Our slide library is constantly being enlarged. We invite inquiries about subjects not listed in the catalog.
Sea & Sage is grateful to the the photographers (over 50) who either donated or allowed us to duplicate their slides for this collection. Each slide bears the photographer's identification. Growth and maintenance of the Library depend on contributions, both financial and in the form of top quality slides. Your help will be greatly appreciated. All proceeds support the conservation and education activities of Sea & Sage Audubon.
The Catalog of SLIDES FOR LOAN contains Bird, Reptile and Mammal slides.
Be sure to follow the directions carefully and print legibly so that your order can be processed.
