Audubon Meeting .

Please join Ogeechee Audubon at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, September 15 for a program about Georgia's Important Bird Areas (IBAs).

The IBA program is an international effort to identify and protect areas and habitats that are critical breeding and/or feeding sites for birds. National Audubon and its local chapters are central to this effort in the United States.

Georgia currently has identified 44 IBAs; 12 of them are right here on the Georgia Coast. On Tuesday, our speaker will be Charlie Muise, IBA Coordinator for the entire state. He will give us some important insights on how ordinary citizens who care about bird conservation can help the IBA program to achieve its goals.

The program is free and open to the public, so feel free to bring a friend or neighbor. We will meet at our new, temporary location in the First Presbyterian Church at 520 E. Washington St. in Savannah.

Hope to see you there.
Dot Bambach
Vice President,
Ogeechee Audubon Society
