Trailblazer March Meeting
Monday, March 12th, 7 p.m. at S&T
We invite all our neighbors to join us March 12th at 7 p.m. at the S&T Club. Our guest speaker will be Bill Williams, Director of Education for The Center for Conservation Biology and co-founder and president of the Williamsburg Bird Club. This past November, Bill led many of us down the Nature Trail for an Owl Prowl. This time his presentation will be an overview of the ecology and natural history of the 16 diurnal raptor species that have been recorded in the Colonial Historic Triangle. Special emphasis will be given to how to identify each of these birds of prey, when and where each is likely to found, and strategies used by researchers to study them. Prince Butler will outline our Spring Adventure Outings. We’ll have our usual drinks and snacks and collect the annual $5 dues from our members. We again remind you that you don’t have to belong to Trailblazers to come to our meetings. Everyone is welcome.
