Meeting Minutes -- 2002 to the Present

Peregrine Falcon

General membership meetings of the Three Rivers Birding Club are now held on the first Wednesday of the even numbered months (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec) of the year.* At each meeting minutes are taken covering both the business portion and the featured program for the evening. During the business meeting club officers give reports on the upcoming newsletter, financial and membership status, developments on our websites, upcoming outings, recent bird sightings, and other important announcements. The featured programs include a wide variety of speakers on various bird-related topics and our annual 'slide slam,' when members present photos they have taken during the year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our meetings have been held virtually via the Zoom platform beginning with our August 2020 meeting. Plans are to continue with this format at least through the summer and into fall of 2021.


*In the first five years, club meetings were held on the odd numbered months except for April — Jan, Mar, Apr, Jul, Sep, Nov.
