We are in need of a volunteer (or a team) to book and coordinate our programs beginning in September. It is not a huge commitment, but it is a commitment. It entails finding, booking and confirming speakers for each month, September through June. It would also require giving the information to our newsletter editor. It is a nice opportunity to meet a host of interesting people on a little more of a personal basis than you might otherwise not. You would not be left on your own to figure it out. We have ideas and resources to help. We all work together to create our Society.
If this is something you would be interested in, please call, email or text either Jody Banaszak or Annette Brownell.
I am a backyard birder. When I joined Audubon, I envisioned that I would soon be running through bushes all over the place, my little safari hat in place, identifying birds and their calls. I thought that ornithology would become as second nature as horticulture is to me.
Writing this in the beginning of October, I was going to comment on the dry summer we just experienced, but Mother Nature did a turn around and we are now experiencing the dregs of Hurricane Ian, the final consequences of which are yet to be seen.
It was a cold, overcast, blustery day out in Montauk for the chapter’s field trip on January 7th. But there was a good turnout of participants willing to brave the elements and see some birds that are most easily seen at ‘The End’.
