COVID-19 Response Update, December 9, 2020: The HMBC Board has decided to cancel all club field trips until further notice. One exception to this is the 2020 Christmas Bird Counts (CBCs). They will be held, following COVID-19 safety guidelines from the National Audubon Society. 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.
