Our Annual picnic is much like our midwinter Potluck. Everyone brings their own place settings (plate, cups, utensils, etc.) plus food to share. We are trying to make this a plastic free event to meet the June Year of the Bird Challenge. Servings should be for 8 people, since most of us don't eat a lot of everything that will should be plenty for everyone. Extra chairs would be appreciated since it can be a bit tight.
We will be meeting the pavillion next to the Marion Diehl Center which is adjacent to the Tyvola Center Center. If you are coming from the South Park area on Tyvola turn in where it says Queens University Center (that's the turn before the senior center). The pavillion will be on the left after the tennis courts. If you are coming from South Blvd. turn into the senior as usual but follow the road to the left around the Marion Diehl Center. The pavillion will be on the right.
We will start setting up around 6 PM and plan on eating at 6:30 PM. So bring your appetite for some food, fun and birding fellowship.

Definitive Book about the birds of central
North & South Carolina

Mecklenburg Audubon is excited to announce this labor of love by local birders, photographers and illustrators will go on sale soon. The book is a first of its kind, an authoritative, comprehensive summary of the status, distribution, and historical context of all the birds regularly occurring in the Piedmont of both Carolinas. It includes original historical research never before compiled and published in on sources; full accounts of 312 species with additional partial accounts of another 60 species; over 400 color photographs taken in the central Carolinas; and the complete results of the Mecklenburg County Breeding Bird Atlas. (Cost: $45 plus shipping)

To avoid shipping charge, you can also purchase the book at monthly meetings. Orders will be mailed out once a week book rate, so figure on at least 2 weeks for delivery.
