Audubon Monthly Meeting
All monthly Audubon meetings are held at the Pacific Grove Museum on the second Tuesday of the month. All meetings are free and members and non-members are welcome! Doors open at 7:00 PM with soft drinks and cookies provided by MAS hospitality. Monterey Audubon has been devoted to the understanding, conservation and enjoyment of Central California's birdlife since 1943. We strive to connect communities and individuals to the region's avifauna through educational programs and outdoor recreation. As a chapter of America's oldest conservation group we are also committed to advocacy on behalf of native avifauna and ecosystems as well as the implementation of stewardship practices which conserve and restore the Monterey region's precious biological diversity and wildlife.

Renewable Energy and Birds - Garry George, Audubon California
California leads the US in a renewable energy policy that drives large-scale wind, solar and geothermal projects in windy areas and true desert. California also lead the nation in using new technology to avoid, minimize, and reduce conflicts with birds thanks to Bay area chapters that demanded solutions to the bird fatalities at Altamont Pass. Garry George, the renewable energy director and chapter network director of Audubon California will speak on the politics and impacts of renewable energy on birds and how Audubon California is making the happen through conservation efforts.
Refreshments at 7:00pm, Speaker at 7:30 pm.
