Monthly Meetings

October 7 - 6:45 pm

The program A Quick Birding Trip to Jamaica will be presented by Ron Hoff. Ron is past president of both TOS and KTOS.  He and Dollyann Myers are quietly setting worldwide bird count records and having fun while doing it.  In Jamaica, they got 22 lifers in Jamaica, out of a possible 26 or 27.  Getting there and finding those birds was not easy, he said, "but it made for a funny story in the end."  Come hear about their adventure and enjoy the photographs they took.

The meeting will be held in Room 118 of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.  Click here for directions.
