November Monthly Audubon Society 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.In 1972 conservationists, including Monterey Audubon members were successful in a long, hard-fought battle to create the Monterey Regional Park District. Since then the District has protected approximately 12,500 acres and has acquired, or helped to acquire, a total of 24 parks and open spaces; most recently acquiring Palo Corona Ranch Regional Park - "the gateway to Big Sur."
Join us and MRPD Conservation Director, Tim Jensen, for an overview of the District's portfolio of properties, access opportunities, special species present in the parks and the District's plans for the future.
