JBNHS ANNUAL MEETING AT POND HOUSE
June 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is the meeting at which new board members and officers are elected, representatives to the NYSOA meeting are chosen, decisions are made about where JBNHS donations to other deserving organizations go, birds distract the attendees, and it ends with a picnic in a one of the most beautiful settings in Ulster County: John Burroughs Sanctuary, in West Park. Directions: Route 9W to West Park, turn by the Post Office onto Floyd Ackert Road. Cross the railroad tracks and in ½ mile pass Burroughs Drive on the left, shortly after turn left on the gated driveway to Pond House. For a picnic, bring your lunch, insect repellant, folding chairs, and of course binoculars. Members are welcome to join Mark DeDea for the pre-meeting bird walk on the property starting at 8:00 AM.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
