Madagascar 

       with Arden & Sherry Hagen
Come join Arden & Sherry Hagen as they take you on their 
trip to Madagascar through photos and commentary. 
Madagascar has been called the “8th Continent” of the 
world due to it’s diversity of plant and wildlife found no 
where else in the world, like the sometimes inquisitive 
Lemurs and interesting Chameleons.

A country that is slightly larger than the state of California 
has a lot to offer in scenery. As they traveled they thought 
a lot of this looks like parts of the USA but smaller in scale. 
It is a land of poverty and French influence.
 
Birding was, of course, the main focus of the trip and they 
were not disappointed in the birds they saw and
Sherry photographed

Change to Newsletter Renewal Date
& Membership Dues
Renewal Date is September 1st
In August 2015, during the update of the chapter bylaws, our Board of directors changed how membership is defined at Vancouver Audubon society (VAS).
Please check out the updated VAS Constitution & Bylaws through the button on the left for a more thorough explanation.

This means that now when you send in your newsletter renewal in the fall you will also be considered a member of VAS. How great is that?! 
In addition, we changed the renewal date from November 1st to September 1st. Membership dues are $10 and members will continue to receive the Columbia Flyway newsletter and will be entitled to one vote for elections and other voted activities.
