Each year at the Good Earth Home, Garden & Living Show, hundreds of vendors with earth-friendly products gather to promote their wares and provide information on environmental and sustainability topics. Lane County Audubon Society’s booth will be part of the action again this year.
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.
