The public is invited to participate in all activities.

The next meeting of the Virginia Beach Audubon Society will be Monday, December 4th, starting at 6:00 PM.  this is our annual Chrsitmas Potluck Dinner and is being held one week earlier than our normal meeting due to conflicts at our meeting location.  Please contact our hospitatlity Chairperson, Julie Coari via email (sp1nner@cox.net or phone 757=495-775) to let her know if you will attend and if you can bring a side dish.  Our meeting location is the Eastern Shore Chapel Episcopal Church, 2020 Laskin Road in Virginia Beach. We meet in the room on the right at the front of the building.

Please check the Field Trip page for a listing of all Field Trips planned for this calendar year.  However there are two Field Trips prior to the November meeting - Grandview and Chicoteague.  There is also a special Monday trip to Craney Island on Nov 6th.  Contact Steve about this trip.

So please 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.
