August is here and fall is in the air! The Cheyenne-High Plains Audubon Society is gearing up for a wonderful fall season of outings, speakers, and birding news. Here are some dates to remember in August.
August 18th: Field Trip to Turtle Rock, Pole Mountain. We will leave from the Cheyenne Botanic Garden’s Grand Conservatory parking lot at 8:00 a.m. Please note that the Forest Service does have an access fee for each vehicle. Bring water, clothes for changing weather, and a snack or lunch if you wish. The hike is about 3 miles including up and down hills. We should be back to town by 2:00 p.m.
We ask that all attendees contact Grant Frost (307-343-2024) so that we can let you know if the trip must be canceled. We may be able to help with carpooling – please let Grant know if you need or can share a ride.
August 28th: CHPAS Board Meeting and pot-luck dinner at Barb and Mark’s house. We welcome anyone who is interested in working with our Chapter. If you wish to attend, please contact Barb or Mark at 307-634-0463.
August 31st: Cheyenne Country Club Survey 7:00 a.m. Contact Chuck Seniawski to take part in this survey. Chuck’s phone is 638-6519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
$$$ Chapter Member Dues renew in August $$$ If you have been a chapter member in 2017-2018, you will receive an invitation to renew for the 2018-2019 season. People who have already renewed for the 18-19 year will not get the renewal notice.
Dues are still $12 per household, but we are always happy when members make an additional contribution. Your continued support helps to defray the cost of our presentations and provides important support in areas like conservation and environmental education.
If you are not currently a member and would like to join (or if you lost your renewal notice), send in your dues along with your name, mailing address and email addresses for anyone in your household who would like to be a member to. We hope you will chose to receive your monthly newsletter by email.
Bring your dues and information to a meeting or mail them to:
