April 16 Meeting. After a very long winter most of us are ready for better weather and the advent of spring wildflowers. The Tiadaghton Audubon Society surely is!!!! Please join us at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center in Wellsboro on Wednesday night, April 16 at 7:30PM, when Ken Meyerwill take us into warmer weather and a walk into woods and fields with his photos of spring wildflowers. Ken will focus on spring and summer wild flowers, and he will explain how to identify some of the more common species. His presentation will include many photos taken during years of wandering across Tioga County, and he will also discuss some of his photographic techniques. He will conclude with a series of nature pictures taken in and around the County depicting the four seasons. Ken is a retired professor from Mansfield University and a long standing member of the local photo club where he has won numerous awards for his work. With a background that includes teaching botany and floristics, attendees will benefit greatly from this well researched presentation.
Hills Creek State Park Spring Bird Walks. Once again this year, TAS members will lead spring bird walks at Hills Creek State Park. The walks will take place every Saturday in April and May and start at 8:00 AM at the park office. Walks are free and designed for birders of all levels or people just interested in birds. No pre-registration is required. Just show up at the park office. The weather is often very cold and blustery during the first couple of walks in April, so be prepared and dress warmly. The walks generally take about two hours and cover about a milie and half. Participants should wear appropriate shoes and bring binoculars.
