Our ANNUAL Picnic - Rider Park, 6:00 pm
This is our annual picnic, suitable for the whole family. Everyone brings a
dish to share, along with their own paper tableware and utensils. The
chapter will provide beverages.....soft drinks and water, along with a special treat of sundaes made with genuine Eder's ice cream! We meet at the covered pavilion , just up the hill from the
parking lot. (You may drive up to the pavilion.)
Rider park is at the end of Caleb’s Creek Road, turn right just
0.8 mile north of downtown Warrensville, follow dirt road a mile
and a half to the park. Gate will be open.

Ed Reish Remembered
In May we lost one of Lycoming Audubon’s stalwart members, Ed Reish. He
was remembered fondly at the most recent LAS meeting at the JV Brown
Ed served on the LAS board for 33 years in various positions, either the
conservation chair or a director at large. Ed was talented as a
“builder”, and he made many items the chapter used for years, such as
the box for toting equipment to meetings and a huge peregrine falcon
silhouette to advertise a project. He also crafted name tags for every
member of the board while he was active, and was responsible for
acquiring the Lycoming Audubon logo pins that many of us wear. In 2012
Ed was named the chapter’s only “Director Emeritus”.

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.
