Spring Gathering 2017

After Kane County Audubon did a bang-up job of hosting the Illinois Audubon Society's "Spring Gathering" on May 19 - 21, President Bob Andrini issued this thank you to KCA members:

A very big THANK YOU to all the KCA members who helped support our hosting of the annual Spring Gathering for the IAS. 191 registrations, 138 meals on Friday and 154 meals on Saturday were only possible because of the MANY hands that worked together.

Although we only birded for a few hours on Saturday (due lightning - we did bird in the rain), and about 3 hours on Sunday, we still saw an amazing 139 species of birds. With the strange warbler migration we have been experiencing, we still saw 22 species of those amazing birds.

Thanks go out to many: trip leaders, food handlers, set-up crew, take down crew - and the list goes ON AND ON AND ON.

THANK YOU ALL - personally and from the KCA Board
