Ogeechee Audubon Society will be celebrating the culmination of the Year of the Bird with our Holiday Party.
Our celebration will feature a presentation by Diana Churchill on Winter Birds as a warm-up for our upcoming Christmas Birds Counts. We will then put our skills to the test in a friendly competition! In addition, we will conclude our raffle benefiting the Orphaned Bird Care Program.

Larry’s presentation will discuss the recovery of the Fort Stewart red-cockaded woodpecker population and management activities that support other rare species on the Installation.
