Meeting: Monday, November 8th, 7:00 PM
Covenant Presbyterian Church, 2001 North Coalter St., Staunton
Program: "Which end of the field guide is up? Birds (and a few insects!) in Sub-Saharan Africa," by Dr. Doug Pfeiffer

After a lapse of nearly 18 months, the Augusta Bird Club is resuming monthly in-person meetings once again, but members are urged to take precautions, such as wearing masks while inside, getting vaccinated, and following social distancing guidelines. These guidelines also apply during field trips.


NATURE CAMP 2022

It's not too early to think about Nature Camp 2022! Nature Camp will hold four youth sessions from mid-June through mid-August; each session will be two weeks long. Campers who have completed grades 5 through 12 are eligible to attend. You may print and fill out the ABC Scholarship Application, and send it to the address indicated therein.
