Fall 2018 Meetings

Grosse Pointe Audubon is pleased to announce its fall 2018 meeting schedule and speakers.

Sept. 17—Fauna and Flora at No Name Lake
Photographer Robert Weir lives near a small lake near Washington, Michigan. The lake is so small that it doesn’t have a name. But that formality doesn’t prevent an astonishing variety of wildlife from visiting.

Oct. 15—Birding Borneo
Join Bryn Martin for yet another fabulous Washtenaw Audubon international field trip, to Borneo, the third largest island in the world, and home to one of Earth’s oldest rainforests. With 688 species of birds, including 59 endemics, and such interesting mammals as Orangutan, Proboscis Monkey, and Bornean Gibbon, expect great diversity in wildlife. Bryn Martin is an avid international birder, Washtenaw Audubon’s field trip coordinator, and teaches high school in Livonia.

Nov. 19—Mi Bird-Friendly Communities
Linnea Rowse, the conservation program coordinator for Michigan Audubon, will visit us to talk about her organization’s program that works to engage local communities in urban bird conservation programs. Michigan Audubon collaborates with diverse partners including units of local governments, businesses, nonprofits, schools, and community groups to make this program a success.

Grosse Pointe Audubon meets in the annex behind Grosse Pointe Unitarian Church, 17150 Maumee in Grosse Pointe City. Social hour starts at 7 and meetings start promptly at 7:30. The meeting is free and open to the public.
