22 - A special event takes the place of our regular meeting: "Climate Change" - Richard Alley, Ph.D., will provide a balanced view of current research on climate change during a presentation at 7 p.m. on March 22 in the Keiper Recreation Center, on the campus of Lycoming College. The event is free and open to the public. His presentation, titled “The big picture on energy and climate,” discusses the dynamics of how money, jobs, national security, ethics and the environment influence perceptions and decisions about energy. Dr. Richard Alley is the Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences and Associate of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park. He teaches and conducts research on the climatic records, flow behavior, and sedimentary deposits of large ice sheets, to aid in prediction of future changes in climate and sea level.


Winter birding is great too.  Here are some local beauties seen recently!

Lycoming Audubon Society's Google Listserv
Lycoming Audubon Society has a new mechanism to quickly notify individuals of bird sightings or impromptu birding trips via e-mail. This involves joining "Lycoming Audubon Society's Google Listserv".  If you are interested in receiving these notices please send us an e-mail and we will add you to the distribution list.

Lycoming Audubon’s Board of Directors has a “wish list” of projects that we agree are very worthwhile.  Realistically, the Board can not accomplish these projects without a “champion” to lead the charge.   If one of these projects is near and dear to your heart, please consider “adopting" it with guidance, assistance and support from your LAS Board.  Contact Joan at (570) 651-0131 to discuss further.

1.  HAWK WATCH on North White Deer Ridge (formal data collection for Golden Eagle migration at this location would be especially valuable).

2.  Conservation Education liaison with Rider Park, the Waterdale Environmental Center and others.  Do you want to help teach youngsters about the magical world of birds?  Sign up to help our group of aspiring educators. 

3.  A cam site connected to our webpage (Peregrine or Eagle nest would be neat).

4.  Feeding station/birding program at a few local nursing homes.
5.  LAS Kestrel trail.
