Because of the coronavirus emergency, the Augusta Bird Club meeting scheduled for April 13 has been CANCELED.
For the time being, we are going ahead with scheduled field trips, subject to "social distancing" guidelines; carpooling is not recommended. Members will be notified via e-mail about whether we will have the annual picnic-brunch, perhaps some time in June.

Speaker: Baxter Beamer, Blue Ridge Young Birders Club There wil be a SPECIAL "Birds & Brews, Wings & Wine" social hour in honor of ABC founding member Grant Simmons, who will soon be moving away from our area. It will be held on Tuesday, June 25 at 5:30 pm, at the Mill Street Grill in Staunton.
