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.

 

Program Meeting, Tuesday, February 25, 7:00 pm: The History of Birding in Oregon with Alan Contreras

Please Note: 7 pm start time!

Alan Contreras is currently writing A History of Oregon Ornithology for OSU Press, with help from Vjera Thompson, Nolan Clements, Chip Jobanek, Herb Wisner, Larry McQueen, and others. This program will feature more people than birds, while illustrating how bird study has changed in Oregon from the early 1800s through the Internet age. You’ll hear about John Kirk Townsend (as in Warbler and Solitaire), whose bird specimens were eaten by hungry members of his team, and Henry Henshaw, who mistakenly let off his shotgun in front of the constable’s home. Another historical character was Olaus Murie, who banded the first Oregon bird and then nearly completed his life list at Three Arch Rocks. More fascinating characters will surely make their appearances as his remarks and anecdotes range over a hundred years of Lane County birding.

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.
