Monthly Meetings


April 2, 2015, at 7:00 PM. Pamela Bayne, Triangle Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

"Does This Bird Need Saving?"

Pamela Bayne will present information on how to identify what birds need to be rescued including tips on learning how to intervene or even if intervention is necessary. She also will discuss the role of a wildlife rehabilitation center. Pamela is a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator and Executive Director of the Triangle Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic in Durham. There is no charge for these meetings and everyone, including nonmembers, is welcome. For details and directions click here.

Note: As a result of inclement weather, we had to postpone our March membership meeting. Debbie Roos will speak on "Create a Pollinator Paradise!" at our meetimg on May 7th.

Barn Owl Web Cam


New Hope Audubon, together with the US Army Corps of Engineers, has installed a web cam in one of our Barn Owl nest boxes near the Jordan Lake Dam. The antenna is now permanently installed, so the camera is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Here's the link.

The nest box is NOT currently occupied, but we hope someone will move in this winter or in the spring. So check in from time to time just to see if anything is happening. If we learn of any activity, we will announce it here and through our various social media outlets.
