Upcoming Chapter Meeting & Programs

Feb 8 (Sun.) – 1PM – Teaneck Creek Conservancy
Calling all citizen scientists!  Join BCAS for a free indoor presentation on how to participate in the 18th annual Great Backyard Bird Count. Counting birds is a free, fun, family-friendly way to discover and help birds in your community. The GBBC takes place on February 13-16, 2015.

Feb. 18, Wed., 7:30PM. Topic: Avian Wild life Birds
Speaker, Giselle Chazotte Smisko of Avian Rehabilitation. A fuzzy ball of a bird has just fallen 30 feet from its nest and now sits in your hands; what do you do? Many people have faced this dilemma and found themselves feeling more helpless than the bird. This slide presentation handles that situation and many others that confront wildlife rehabilitators.  Practical information will be offered on how people can prevent many of the problems that threaten our wildlife.

Bald Eagle presentation: Alice and Al, A Tale of Two Eagles-this free indoor program will provide information and updates on the local pair of bald eagles, Alice & Al and will also discuss the remarkable comeback of the bald eagle in New Jersey
