GSBAS Annual Dinner: Huge Success!
It was an enjoyable evening of amazing door prize give-a-ways, and awesome raffles, including a Steven D’Amato original bird painting. The raffles made everyone feel like a winner. The festivities kicked-off with a great interactive centerpiece game that Annette shared with us about a true bird story. Each guest at every table became part of the game as we handed our table’s stuffed bird to one another, passing left or right depending on the direction in the story being told. All ended with a lucky winner at each table claiming the prize!
A highlight of the evening was learning about River Otters, as the famous Wildlife Biologist Mike Bottini shared a presentation about his study and the recolonization of the otters to Long Island. It was interesting to learn about sightings, roadkill reports, accidental trappings, and other historical data dating back to 1983 covering over 150 potential otters sites on Long Island.
Everyone left feeling better informed, happy, and more connected with each other as our flock came together to reconvene as part of the Audubon Society. Stay tuned for more exciting events, walks, and get-togethers as the season unfolds into summer and fall!
May 2nd will be here before we know it. As Dinner Chairman, I am looking for volunteers to help make the evening a success.
Hello my little birding friends!! Hope you are all well and are enjoying bird watching. As I write this, it’s January and there’s snow on the ground.
I spent my growing up years living next door to my grandparent’s farm in Terryville, Port Jefferson Station. My grandparents were “truck farmers.”
