The 2017 annual planning meeting and elections have come and gone, and we have some great programs and nature walks on tap. We will be hearing about Monarch butterflies, urban wildlife, spring ephemeral wildflowers, woodpeckers of the Piedmont, and many more interesting monthly programs.

We’ll have second Sunday nature walks on the Laurel Bluff Trail and at the Guilford County Farm (aka Prison Farm). We’ll explore the geology of Guilford County and partake of a Wine-and-Warblers outing at Grove Winery. How’s that for a new twist?

Contributing to a great year ahead is a very talented group of board members and officers: Dennis Burnette, Lynn Burnette, Sue Cole, Sarah Gilley, Lynne Gray, Judy Hoag, Jack Jezorek, Lynn Moseley, Marie Poteat, Stella Wear, and Tom Wear. The TGPAS officers are: Lynn Moseley, chair; Sarah Gilley, co-chair; Sue Cole, treasurer; and Judy Hoag, secretary. Many thanks to all who are giving of their time and talent to make Pearson Audubon such a wonderful chapter. — Jack Jezorek, outgoing co-chair
