The Mearns Club follows CDC and New York State COVID-19 guidelines. Please wear a mask—preferably a multilayer mask rather than a single-layer cloth mask or a bandanna—to meetings to protect yourself and other club members against COVID-19, even if you’re fully vaccinated. Please do not attend meetings if you aren’t feeling well or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
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.
