Next Meeting - Jan 2015

No meeting in December, participate in the annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC).



The 115th Christmas Bird Count


From December 14 through January 5 tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas take part in an adventure that has become a family tradition among generations. Families and students, birders and scientists, armed with binoculars, bird guides and checklists go out on an annual mission - often before dawn. For over one hundred years, the desire to both make a difference and to experience the beauty of nature has driven dedicated people to leave the comfort of a warm house during the Holiday season.



Take part in a local CBC count.


The Joliet circle count will be held on Saturday December 20, 2014.
