SEPTEMBER MONTHLY MEETING, Thursday, September 1, 2022: If the Covid pandemic allows, our first membership monthly meeting of the next season will be our annual potluck and slideshow with slides provided by members. Watch this space for details later this summer.

We record each of our virtual meetings, so if you miss one, you may watch it at your leisure. There are links to each of these recordings on this page.

BIRD OUTINGS: Walks usually last 2-3 hours. No reservations or sign-up needed. If there is a large turnout for any particular walk, we may split into two groups. Attendees must be vaccinated; 12 years old or younger must be masked. We also ask that everyone use social distancing. We will meet directly at the walk site. For details on each outing, see the Events List on this page.

JORDAN LAKE BIRD COUNT CHARTS: Visit our new Bird Count Charts page to explore our historical data going back to 1977 for both our Spring and Christmas Bird Counts.
