Come to the Newton Conservators’ First-Ever Outdoor Annual Dinner Meeting, Wednesday May 24, 2023
Tickets are $45. Please register online by May 15:
The meeting will occur under a tent on the Mount Ida Campus in Newton of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. A social gathering (with hors d’oeuvres and cash bar) begins at 5 PM, followed by a buffet dinner, a short business meeting with elections and awards, and a presentation on “Snowy Owls to Saw-whet Owls” by Norman Smith, Raptor Specialist from Mass Audubon.
Since 1981 Mr. Smith has been observing, capturing, banding, and relocating Snowy Owls at Logan International Airport. His work developed in an unusual way to include research on Saw-whet Owls. His slides, sense of humor, and depth of knowledge are remarkable.
