2001 TOS Spring Meeting

The Nashville chapter of TOS will host the 2001 Spring Meeting May 4-6 at Paris Landing State Park. The park is located on US Highway 79, Henry County, on the western shore of Kentucky Lake, between Paris and Dover. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-250-8614, and please state that you are with TOS.

We are pleased to have Troy Ettel as our speaker at Saturday night's banquet. He has just recently been selected as TWRA's new State Ornithologist, effective last December 1. His duties will include administration of the statewide nongame bird program. He received his MS in Wildlife Biology from the University of Tennessee in 1997. Since then, he has been State Zoologist with The Nature Conservancy in Texas, with a focus on birds. Please come and meet our new State Ornithologist, and hear his ideas on helping our birds. Gary Myers, Director of TWRA, will also give a short presentation.

Field trips will include Land Between the Lakes, Britton Ford, the Big Sandy Unit of the TNWR (Pace Point area), Keel Spring Nature Trail (Cerulean Warblers!), Cross Creeks NWR, and hopefully a Henslow's Sparrow spot near Dover. More information on field trips will be posted soon!
