Hi all,

The Cornell Club of Vermont is hosting a visit from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology on Sept 17 and 18!

Scott Sutcliffe and Dr. Charlie Walcott are coming up to share with us some of Dr. Walcott's work, and the latest happenings at the Lab.  I know that many of you are members and friends of both the Lab, it's great work, and these fine gents.  So I wanted to get a notice out to the birding community asap.  A few details are undecided, and the on-line reservation system has not yet been activated.  So, put it on the calendar, and I'll let you know as soon as you can sign up.

Here's a "pre"-release on the event from Alex Tursi our Board President.  She gives her address for information.  But, please feel free to contact me as well
