monthly meetings

The Lynchburg Bird Club meets on the second Wednesday of the month from September through May (except December) at 7 p.m. at the Martin Science Hall on the campus of Randolph College.  After a few brief announcements, bird reports, and club business, we enjoy a program presented by a featured speaker.  Anyone with an interest in birds (including non-members) is welcome at bird club meetings.

​Bird club members and guests may park in the Randolph College and Magnolia Foods parking lot across Norfolk Ave. from Martin Science Hall; additional parking is available in the grass parking lot farther up the hill.

Use the Norfolk Ave. entrance to Martin Science Hall at Randolph College before 7:00 PM. After 7:00 PM, the door may be locked. If so, go to the side of the building opposite the Norfolk Ave entrance and ring the doorbell for a bird club member to let you into the building.

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

Unfortunately, our planned program for May, Exploring American Birds and Landscapes with  Laura McManus, Curator of Education at the Randolph College Maier Museum of Art and Glennys Sheppard, one of our Lynchburg Bird Club members and a Maier museum volunteer, had to be cancelled due to scheduling conflicts at the Maier Museum.

However, we will still meet at our usual place and time for our monthly meeting. Gene Sattler has graciously agreed to provide the program with a presentation on Woodpeckers of Virginia.
