AOS Virtual Fall Meeting 2020
October 9, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - October 10, 2020 @ 8:30 pm
Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are holding our first virtual AOS meeting. During the same Friday and Saturday when we would have gotten together on Dauphin Island, all AOS members are now encouraged to attend activities via the web platform Zoom. On Friday evening, October 9, we will join together via video conference to socialize and say hello. After an hour of hanging out online, we’ll let folks share a few slides of birds and trips or whatever they want to share.
On Saturday evening, the AOS will host an on-line workshop by our own Andrew Haffenden: Identifying the Terns of Dauphin Island. The workshop will be followed by a presentation by our invited speaker, the noted writer, speaker, storyteller and humorist Al Batt. It won’t be the same as getting together under the brilliant October sun and marching across white sand in quest of migrants, but it does have some advantages. Members who are too busy or otherwise could not have made the long drive to Dauphin Island will now have an opportunity to say hello to friends and hear the workshop and “banquet” talk. It will certainly be the greenest meeting in the history of the AOS. For a complete schedule of the weekend’s virtual events, click here.
