Last news update: 13 Sep 2021

Because of the recent upsurge in cases of Covid-19, the Augusta Bird Club meeting scheduled for September 13 has been cancelled. Augusta Bird Club members are once again urged to exercise caution during field trips, following social distancing guidelines.
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.
