Members will be sharing their birding stories and experiences at a special “Members’ Night” for the Oconee Rivers Audubon Society’s next meeting, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 8, at Sandy Creek Nature.
Members will share a story, a poem or a series of photos or drawings related to birds or birding in five-minute time slots during Members’ Night. Speakers can give a short presentation on anything from a trip report to an interesting or humorous encounter with a backyard bird; illustrated talks are limited to five PowerPoint slides.
The meeting will be held in the Nature Center’s Education and Visitor Center, 205 Old Commerce Road off U.S. Highway 441 north of Athens. To reach the nature center from the Loop 10 bypass, exit at U.S. Highway 441/Commerce Road and turn north toward Commerce. Go approximately a mile, turn left at the Sandy Creek Nature Center sign and go to the end of the road. Turn left at Old Commerce Road; parking for the Education and Visitor Center will be on the right.
