Monthly Meetings and Programs
On the first Tuesday of the month from September through June, please join us for some social time and a fun, educational, or informative program. Anyone interested is very welcome!
Vancouver Audubon Chapter has some interesting programs planned for chapter meetings this fall. The twist, of course, is that the meetings will be virtual until it is safe for large gatherings to meet in Washington state. To address this need for virtual meetings, we have purchased a Zoom account to enable members to participate in these educational presentations through their home computer, laptop, or even your smart phone. Members will receive an invitation in their email to join the virtual meetings at the designated meeting time through a link in the email. Members will be asked to sign in by giving their email address. An internet connection is required. Members will be able to interact with written questions at the end of the program.
Didn’t receive your Zoom invitation? Contact Don Rose for more information.
