COVID-19 Response Update, September 25, 2020: The HMBC Board has decided to cancel all club field trips until further notice. One possible exception to this may be the 2020 Christmas Bird Counts (CBCs). Guidance from the National Audubon Society indicates that the decision whether or not to hold each count is up to the individual count compilers, and NAS recommends waiting until after November 15th to make that decision based on the pandemic conditions at that time. Announcement of the status of the three HMBC CBCs will be made after that date. HMBC virtual programs will continue via Zoom until further notice. We will continue to monitor New York State Executive Orders and guidance related to social-distancing requirements. As the details of orders and guidance are revised, we will re-evaluate whether or not to hold subsequent events. Please check hmbc.net frequently for any updates.
