Because of the coronavirus pandemic, all Augusta Bird Club members are urged to abide by social distancing guidelines and mask wearing during field trips, in keeping with Governor Northam's emergency order. For the time being, our monthly meetings will be online, using the Zoom video teleconferencing system; members will be notified in the bulletin about how to gain access. Stay safe!
There wil be a SPECIAL "Birds & Brews, Wings & Wine" social hour in honor of ABC founding member Grant Simmons, who will soon be moving away from our area. It will be held on Tuesday, June 25 at 5:30 pm, at the Mill Street Grill in Staunton.
