TGPAS Annual Meeting

Cooper’s Hawk/Dennis Burnette

Our chapter has had another good year. Attendance at both our monthly programs and Second Sunday Nature Walks has been strong. We’ve got a great newsletter (Nature Notes) and a terrific website. We have great things going at the Audubon Natural Area; we are scouring the county looking for chimneys that may be sites for Chimney Swift roosts come fall; and we are exploring possibilities for a Chimney Swift tower at the Piedmont Environmental Center.

Now it is time to think about and plan for the 2017-2018 program year. We’d like you to join us at the chapter’s annual planning meeting 2-5 p.m., Sunday, June 4th in the Conference Room at the KCE Library at Price Park.

When we gather we will elect officers and the Board of Directors for the next year (see accompanying article). But mostly we will brainstorm about possible monthly programs and nature walks. And we’ll discuss how to move forward with various projects like the Chimney Swift monitoring effort, enhancements at the Audubon Natural Area, planting native plants for birds and the effects of climate change on them.

We want to keep the momentum of the past year going and even expand the ways in which we can have fun, enjoy the outdoors and help our birds and other wildlife.

If you are intrigued, if you’d like to check us out; or maybe if you’d like to get more involved, please join us. Attendance implies no obligation to become active. This is a chance to explore and plan along with us. We value your ideas and suggestions about how to make Pearson Audubon even better. Having said that, we certainly invite you to consider helping with some of the tasks that make the chapter run smoothly, some of which we’ll talk about at the planning meeting. As the old saying goes, “Many hands make light work”.

Again, that’s 2-5 p.m., Sunday, June 4, KCE Library Conference Room, Price Park. Please come to share your thoughts and suggestions and help make our Audubon chapter even better.
