Our next membership meeting will be held at Pinckney Hall at 4:30 pm, on Wednesday, April 3.

Abby Sterling, a biologist with Manomet, a nonprofit science organization, will talk about "Shorebirds of the Georgia Bight: Connecting the Hemisphere through Conservation." The Georgia Bight, a geographic region stretching between Cape Hatteras and Cape Canaveral, provides important habitat to shorebirds within the Atlantic Flyway. During this talk, Abby will describe the incredible stories of these shorebirds as they travel on their dramatic journeys, stopping for a time in our part of the world.
