We are pleased to announce that, despite the limits of COVID-19, we have put together a series of bird walks  starting in October. 

COVID-19 rules require some changes from our past practices. We will not have any organized car pools. Birders should meet at the birding venue at the time indicated. Detailed directions to most of the birding sites are found here. Each birding group will be limited to 10 individuals, including the leader. If we have more than 10, we will split up with multiple leaders. Masks will be required during the entire bird walk. Not only is this a rule in state parks and other places, it is simply a prudent measure to protect us all.
