Monthly Meeting Time & Location

CAAS meets the first Thursday of the month

Meetings will be held online via Zoom this fall. The first two months will be a bit of a trial, and if we have enough interest and people attending, we will continue after the first few months, but if they are poorly attended we will likely not hold any additional virtual meetings until we can meet in person.

Social time will take place from 7-7:30 pm followed by brief announcements and our speaker at 7:30 pm. If you would like to try Zoom before the meeting, please email Kristy at to arrange a brief trial.

September 3 Birds of Asia

Dr. Pamela Rasmussen will share her vast knowledge and past work with Asian birds. Rasmussen, the lead author of Birds of South Asia: The Ripley Guide, is an assistant professor at MSU and assistant curator at the MSU Museum. She is also the coordinator of MSU’s global bird sounds website AVoCet.

Programs and field trips for the rest of the 2020-2021 year will be announced when they become available.

Fall Bird Walks at Fenner

Please join fellow CAAS members for our fall migration bird walks at Fenner Nature Center.  Birders will meet at the parking lot at 9:00 am and disperse in groups of 10 for a walk around the property. Please wear a mask, and please observe social distancing practices.

Walks will be lead by Bob Kingsbury.

Do not attend the walks if you feel sick, are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in personal contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
