In keeping with efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mearns Bird Club Board of Directors has decided to cancel ALL club field trips and meetings until further notice. The club picnic, traditionally held in June, has been postponed.
2020 Meeting Dates
General meetings of the Mearns Club are held at 7:00 pm on the second Monday of every month from September through May (except February). At club meetings, a club member or an outside speaker gives a presentation about his or her birding travels or studies. Here’s the line-up for 2019–2020:
March 9, 2020: Lee Hunter, Birding Ethiopia
April 20, 2020 (third Monday): Scott Craven will speak on the history of Croton Point, New York, and its avian fauna.
May 11, 2020: Alan Wells, Large Wading Birds of North America
June 2020: Club picnic
Meetings are held in the second-floor library of the Washingtonville Middle School, in Washingtonville, New York. Please note that if the Washingtonville schools are closed because of inclement weather, the meeting is cancelled!
Note that owing to security changes at the school, the front door will remain locked. We’ll position one of our members at the door to let people in until 5 or 10 minutes after the start of the meeting. Please try to arrive on time.
Are you interested in making a presentation to our club? If so, please contact Program Chair Alan Wells at email@example.com. A small stipend is available for nonmembers.
