During the public health crisis: For safety, all monthly membership meetings are being held online using Zoom. Some field trips are being held where social distancing is easily practiced, like heron surveys and sea watches. We will be gradually resuming our other field trips in May but COVID protocols are strictly followed and masks and social distancing are required at all times.
