The next meeting scheduled for
April 13th has been CANCELLED.
These are challenging
times with the COVID-19 virus causing havoc everywhere.
Most of our board and our attending membership is in the most
vulnerable age group. Regulations from both the State and
Federal leaders continues to change to lock down the population
to try to slow down the spreading of this virus. In all
probability the May meeting will also be cancelled based on the
Virginia Governors latest timetable.
The Audubon Student Art Show at Pembroke
Mall has been cancelled by the Virginia Beach School System
Superintendant. With schools going virtual for the
remainder of the school year then this is a very good decision.
However at the same time the recomendation is to
get outside. We are not cancelling the field trips but
must make sure that we are meeting the guidelines of no more
than 10 people congregate at one site and you must maintain 6
foot of clearance from each other. Cancellation will be by
the Field Trip leader but I am sure that cancellation will
happen due to individuals decideing not to participate.
Here is a calendar of coming
events. As of March 24th none of these events have been
cancelled. However you need to check the websites listed
on a ongoing basis to see if they are cancelled. I am sure
that several will.
Upcoming events include:
come join us in and share your encounters with our avian friends as
well as learn about them from some of the talented people that
live in the Hampton Roads area.
