[Bluebird 2019] September-October Newsletter

Hello PGAS board and members,

Here is the fall issue of The Bluebird replete with all the regular program info, conservation news, schedule of activities, bird walk reports, beautiful bird photos, and - because it's September - news about our September Migration Celebrations. This year, we celebrate our 6th Annual Mi Casa es Su Casa Migration Celebration at Lake Artemesia in the morning, and continue with a new afternoon Flight Fest Migration Celebration at the College Park Aviation Museum and Airport with lots to see and do for all ages at both of them.

We kick off our Sep 2019-Jun 2020 program year with "Everything Monarch" with Lisa Bierer-Garrett and Christopher Garrett reporting back from their journey to the El Rosario Biosphere in Mexico.

So, relax and enjoy The Bluebird and I hope to see you soon,

[Bluebird 2019] April-May Newsletter

The Bluebird - just in time for bird migration in our yards, parks, communities, on our waterways, and at our May program with a hopeful Chimney Swift Watch to follow.  But, there's more within: a hawk watch; spring clean-up at the Fran Uhler Natural Area (the March one got rained out as you'll read within); planting native plants and beautifying (even more) Lake Artemesia as part of the annual Good Neighbor Day; two new fun birdathons - a Minibirdathon annnd a Maryland Birdathon);  and three green community festivals!  The Calendar of Activities has these and even more opportunities. This is the month encompassing not only April Fool's Day, but Earth Day and other significant dates.

We hope to meet you, hear from you, get to know you.
