May Member Meeting - Purple Martins and Gone to the Birds Festival
Join RAS to learn about Purple Martins, how you might become a Purple Martin host, or simply to find out more about a fascinating bird with a long- standing association with humans. Our presenters, Jimmy Fitzpatrick and Adolph White, are both members of the Purple Martin Conservation Association. These two are long time friends of Purple Martins in the Richmond area who will share with us some of their passion for these flying wonders.
The program will be on Thursday, May 16 at St. Luke Lutheran Church at 7757 Chippenham Pkwy. The program begins at 7 p.m. with coffee, dessert and conversation starting at 6:30.
There are no RAS Member Programs scheduled in June, July or August.
The May/June Issue of the Thrasher is available.
Click to download. This month's featured RAS photographer is Julie Kacmarcik.
