Monthly Meetings

November 4 - 6:45 pm

Join TOS member Danny Shelton as he reveals the back story to the making of the first film to document the lives of those who created  and sustained the Tennessee Ornithological Society.  TOS is the oldest state-level bird-study and conservation organization in the Southeast. See film footage and photographs not included in the original film released last May.  

Experience Danny's journey across  the state to locate the films, photographs, and personal interviews that made the documentary a reality.  DVDs and BlueRay versions will be for sale at the meeting.

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