Our Thursday, December 8 meeting will be our Christmas get-together. Please invite other family members or friends and bring whatever food items – especially Christmas cookies – that you would like to bring.

Larry Helgerman will be in attendance with information for the Christmas Bird Count in IBA 80, and Jose Teracido, of the CUP Wildlife Partnership will share some “Lemons to Lemonade” information for our watershed, and Chet Krcil will give us an update on the osprey platform.

If you have not been able to attend a meeting for awhile, this would be a great one to attend!
