Upcoming Events

Program Meetings

From September to May we have monthly programs on the third Tuesday, 7 pm. They feature a variety of nature topics that inform us and expand our horizons. All are free and open to everyone. This year, due to Covid 19, all meetings will be virtual. Our virtual meetings will be live-streamed on Facebook and on You-Tube at the regular time, and also will be recorded and available for viewing any time.

Field Trips

We take field trips every month of the year, from walks in local parks to multi-day expeditions to other states. Everyone is welcome, from beginners to experts.
