I’m always amazed about how fast the years go by now. How can it be October already? It happens to be my favorite month of the year, so colorful and crisp with the cold winds of winter just around the corner.

Fall is also the start of the Columbus Audubon Program Year. If you haven’t been to a program in a while come and check us out soon.  We have quite a line up this year and got off to a great start with Jim McCormac. We had about 185 people in attendance and he never disappoints. His photographs are stunning and his natural history knowledge amazing. I hope you had a chance to enjoy this program.

In October (24th), we will hear from Judy Semroc from the Natural History Museum in Cleveland. She will be speaking on Chimney Swifts. Andriana Losey, a “Young Birder” will be the Conservation Spotlight for October, reporting on her adventures this past summer at Audubon’s Hog Island in Maine.  November (28th) will bring Stan Gehrt from the Ohio State University to share his knowledge on Urban Coyotes.

We will take a break in December and be back in January (23rd) for Eddie Boyd, who will share his 8,000-mile Triple Crown journey on 3 of the longest trails in the US; Appalachian, Pacific Crest and the Continental Divide trail hiked in 3 years.

Stay connected to your Audubon Chapter through the website, columbusaudubon.org and FBColumbus Audubon. I hope to see you soon.
