Pocono Avian Research Center
Board of Directors Meeting
August 27, 2018- ONLINE
We have also been invited to do a number of events in the community. One thing that we need is to better promote these events, so that we can help support the organizations that invited us and get more people out to learn about them. Lisa is doing a great job of posting to Facebook, so if you see it and could repost these events it would be great. Also, we could use any additional ideas on how to market these types of events to increase attendance.
Finally, we need additional board members for our organization. Would anyone like to work on nominations for additional board members?
5. Education report: we completed a lot of great programs this summer. We did three science programs for the Barrett Friendly Library for the summer program. We have also been invited to do monthly programs for The Nature Conservancy in Long Pond, and finally we have been invited to do monthly programs with the Brodhead Watershed Association water wiser kids program. All of these are in addition to the one-day community events and other birding programs we do.
6. Research report: Our research season ended with a rainy day in August. The season had a lot of schedule problems, but the interns Ty, Gabe, and Luc, held it together and really gave us as much help as they could. We were joined at the end of the season by Stephanie Augustine who is a graduate of Cedar Crest College and is looking for seasonal work in the field. We were grateful for her help. As usual, we provided several research related programs for the Kettle Creek day camp and conservation camp. In the fall, we are getting ready for Owl banding season, and we have schedule education programs on Friday nights in October and November. Come out and join us any night.
7. New Business: Please let me know if there is any new business to discuss.
8. Meeting adjourned
