CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

All feld trips have been canceled until further notice. We will continue to asses the situation and update this space accordingly. Going outside and enjoying nature is a great way to relieve stress and pass these trying times. We encourage you to do so while practicing responsible social distancing.

Our in-person meetings at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens have been suspended until the University allows gatherings to take place. To view our online Zoom programs, you will need access to an internet-capable computer, phone, or similar device. An announcement of the web address to view the program will be on our web site, Facebook page, and on the Birders email list a few days before the program. We may also add more online programs for July and August, which will be announced on the same internet platforms.

Gray Wolves were delisted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services in the entire lower 48 states, effective January 4, 2021. Given that the Gray Wolf has viable populations in only a handful of states, this seems to be an effort to prevent, not encourage, further recovery of a still endangered species. Join Washtenaw Audubon's Conservation Chair, Cathy Theisen, DVM, to examine why this unusual and scientifically unsound interpretation of the Endangered Species Act should be of concern to conservationists, birders and wildlife watchers everywhere.
