Welcome! The Grand Traverse Audubon Club members enjoy birding together, meeting for nature-oriented programs or field trips, and participating in service projects related to the environment. We are concerned about the preservation of habitat for wildlife, and natural areas for the enjoyment of all residents. We are a chapter of the Michigan Audubon Society.
Our meetings are usually the fourth Thursday of the month at the Boardman River Nature Center on Cass Road at 7:00 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Our Next Meeting
November 17 – Introduction to Dragonflies Come find out about the fascinating world of dragonflies; how to identify them (through binocs and in hand), where to look, how many species are there, and their sex life!
Our speaker is Carl Freeman: naturalist and wildlife artist with 25 years of experience in chasing dragonflies (and a lifetime of birds, and butterflies, and orchids, etc).
Join us Thursday, November 17, at 7 p.m. at the Boardman River Nature Center, 1450 Cass Road, south of Airport Road, where the railroad track crosses.
