ACCOMMODATIONS

WEEKEND ACTIVITIES


The weekend begins with Friday evening presentations by graduate students working on birds at Missouri universities. Have some great bird images to share? Bring them on a flash drive and we will have an “open projector” to share them.

Saturday will start with trips to local favorite areas after breakfast. Be sure and let Bill know if you want to lead a trip to a local site. The ASM Board will meet just after lunch. This year’s mid-afternoon workshop will be another ever-popular identification challenge presentation by the Missouri Bird Records Committee’s Secretary, Bill Rowe.

For those who know little about ASM’s “birding with a purpose” and conservation efforts, President Bill Eddleman will be presenting an overview a progress report on the things our expertise as birders have accomplished. Most of the members probably know little about these efforts, so this should be an eye-opener for many. Following the program, we will have the presentation of the Top Ten Birds of last year, our business meeting, and a vote on the Bylaws changes.

Sunday we will have more trips, including a hawk watch if the weather cooperates. Lunch will be back at Camp Clover Point, followed by the tally of bird species seen.

Hope to see everyone there!
