MONTHLY MEETING: Our monthly meetings are on hiatus for the summer. We hope to have our annual members potluck in person on September 2, 2021, depending on the COVID-19 conditions at that time. Watch this space for details later this summer.

BIRD WALKS: We are resuming our regularly scheduled bird walks beginning on Sunday, June 20th. The walks will be Wednesdays and weekends, as in the past. Individual walks will be announced in the Event List on our home page, in our NHAS web site calendar, on the NHAS Meetup page, and on our NHAS Facebook page, where walk leaders will state the time and location. There will not be any reservations or sign-ups needed. If there is a large turnout for any particular walk, we may split into two groups.
Attendees already vaccinated will not need to be masked. Those unvaccinated, we ask to use a mask. We also ask that everyone use social distancing. We will meet directly at the walk site (not Eastgate or Oak Creek Village as in the past). We do recommend car pooling for families or friend pods. Walk leaders will provide directions in their announcements.
