We hope you can join us.     All the information is on the main page of our website www.chicagoaudubon.org .
We will be giving Awards to the following:

We will also be thanking Richard Biss (CAS Rare Bird Alert), Doug Anderson (35+ years as CAS board member/officer, and Wooded Island bird walks) and Carol Nelson (CAS board) for many years of service to CAS and Chicago area birds and conservation.
David Willard of the Field Museum will be presenting (for the first time!) information gathered in over 30 years of collecting data on birds that strike windows etc. at McCormick Place.
This should be a real fun time, and it is always great to honor and thank those who have done so much for birds, habitat, conservation and the environment in the Chicago area.
Please consider coming and invite your friends and others in your organizations.   Contact me for further information.
