Program Meetings

Our monthly program meetings have something for everyone. During the last year we hosted programs by naturalists, wildlife artists and expert birders on a variety of topics from bird fossils in Oregon to the birds of Thailand.

Coming to a program meeting is a fun way to get involved with Lane County Audubon. Meetings are free and open to all so bring along your friends.

We meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month between September and May. Meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. at the Eugene Garden Club, 1645 High St.

 

Climate with Tyler Hallman: Program Meeting, Tuesday, September 24, 7:30 pm

We live in a rapidly changing world. As landscapes transform, so too do the patterns of distribution and abundance of the species that inhabit them. Human-assisted dispersal and changes in climate contribute to combinations of species that have never before had to share the same territory. At the same time, some birds that were once common in the Willamette Valley are now rarely found.

Pollinator Primer: Your Tiny Neighbors and the Plants They Love--Program Meeting Dec. 14

We co-sponsor a program each December with Eugene Natural History Society. This year Bruce Newhouse will share information about pollinators that will help us nurture them.

Did you ever wonder about all those flying and crawling critters on your flowers? Do you know how to tell a bee from a fly? Do you know that some flies are good pollinators? Do you know how to plant a garden that will be the best possible place for pollinators?

If these kinds of questions go through your mind as you stare at your garden, this presentation is for you! We will familiarize ourselves with the most common native pollinators and learn a few simple tricks to tell them apart. We’ll also learn some of the best things you can do to invite native pollinators into your own yard, including which plants “rock the world” of the little creatures that run it.
