May is Birdathon Time

JAS Fund Drive: "Get jizzed up for Birdathon" says Richard! The birdathon is a fun way of supporting JAS as you'll have the chance to get out and do some birding with fellow birders during the peak of the migration for warblers, waterfowl and more.

Check out the article in the newsletter for more details. We'll provide the opportunities with a couple of field trips on May 16 and May 23. We'll meet both Saturdays at the west side of the parking lot of the Dillons on 23rd Street at 7 a.m. and go from there to Clinton Lake and other local hotspots. Join us for all or part of the morning.

Contact Chuck Herman for details or even where to find us if you need to start later in the morning – 913-484-8932.
