Winter meeting schedule

Here's Grosse Pointe Audubon's Winter 2016 meeting schedule. Remember, we meet the fourth Monday of January and February to avoid conflicts with federal holidays.

Jan. 25: Lake Invaders: Invasive species and the fight for the future of the Great Lakes. Grosse Pointe Audubon's own Bill Rapai will do a program on invasive species--who they are, how they got here, the damage they are doing, and what we can do about them.

Feb. 22: A Macomb County Big Year.  In 2014, no fewer than TEN Macomb County birders checked off more than 200 species in their home county. Local legend Tom Heatley became the first (and only!) member of the 300 club, and the county big year record was shattered by two birders.  From Blue Grosbeaks to jaegers and other crazy surprises, join Tom Hince on the obsessive quest to break the county big year record.

March 21: To be announced. 

All meetings will be held in the annex behind Grosse Pointe Unitarian Church, 17570 Maumee, Grosse Pointe. Social Hour starts at 7 p.m. and the meeting starts promptly at 7:30. All meetings are free and open to the public.
