White Mountain Audubon Society meets | Navajo County

The White Mountain Audubon Society resumed their meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at Pinetop-Lakeside Town Hall.

On June 2, Malaina Spillman of the PTLS Public Works Department and Jon Orona, NE District Forester of the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, were guest speakers.

Spillman talked about the Woodland Lake Park project and Orona, an avid bird watcher, talked about it and the many projects he’s been involved in.

Contact them for more information about the park or available programs to control the Western Bork Beetle and reduce the risk of fire.

At the WMAS meeting on July 7th, Rob Bettaso, member of the board of directors of the Audubon Society, will speak about his trip to Patagonia, South America.

Audubon Society President Mary Williams offers a series of PowerPoint presentations of bird watching in the White Mountains on the last Fridays of each month through September.

Although geared towards beginners, there are good reviews and challenges for experienced bird watchers.

Each presentation focuses on species likely to be spotted the next morning on an optional field trip.

The June 25 course will highlight birds visiting the Big Springs Environmental Study Area and the adjacent White Mountain Nature Center. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

All meetings and presentations start at 6.30 p.m. and are public.
