The evening begins with casual cocktail hour so members can come to the committee tables that will be set up and talk with committee chairs, executive committee members, and renew acquaintances and make new friends. Members and guests will also have a chance to talk with our speaker and purchase material from her organization. We’ll have a brief meeting to vote in the new Executive Committee slate, then have dinner.
Afterward, Sue Morse from Keeping Track will present award-winning photos of New England present and past focal species, such as bobcat, moose, black bear, mink, and cougar. Keeping Track is a nonprofit organization Sue founded in 1994 to educate the public about habitat fragmentation and to help monitor threatened regions. The main purpose of her presentation is to make us aware of the rich diversity around us and give us tools to protect the habitat of these beautiful creatures. But she also promises to accompany the show with fantastically accurate animal calls – sure to please the family!
AMC Berkshire wants to encourage members to come and therefore is heavily subsidizing this dinner and talk. Normally a $40 a person cost, this evening cost remains only $15 for adults and $10 for children. In addition, there will be door prizes and awards for our hardworking volunteers.
Sign up early – this is sure to sell out! Deadline is October 26.
