  LECTURES: Buntings & Beer Event, Tuesday, May 10, Holy City Brewery 
FIELD TRIP: Sunday, May 22, McAlHany Nature Preserve

Buntings & Beer
Tuesday, May 10

Join us at Holy City Brewery on Tuesday May 10th at 6:30 pm (or earlier!) to hear about the latest in research from Aaron Given, Biologist with the town of Kiawah Island. Aaron has been researching Painted Buntings for a number of years using Motus, Banding, and Geolocators. Come listen to all that he's discovered about one of our favorite Lowcountry songbirds!

This will be our first in person lecture since the covid shutdown of 2020, and we can't wait to nerd out on buntings with you!

Food and drinks are available on site for purchase, it wouldn't hurt to bring a camping chair for the lecture itself as seating may be limited near the stage. This is an outdoor event. You may want to arrive earlier if you want to order food or a drink before the talk starts, and to allow for evening traffic added time.

Holy City Brewery Tuesday May 10th, 6:30 (earlier if you want to chat and grab some food or a drink before the talk at 6:30!) — 1021 Aragon Ave, North Charleston, SC 29405

Welcome to the Charleston, SC Audubon

We are the Charleston Natural History Society (CNHS)and  Charleston‘s Audubon society – a South Carolina chapter of the National Audubon Society since 1970. Founded as the Charleston Natural History Society in 1905, we serve Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties. We are a nonprofit environmental organization that actively promotes awareness, appreciation and conservation of the natural environment through educational programs, field trips, conservation projects, sponsored research and social activities.

For over a year now we've been using a new chapter logo on our newsletters, signage and Facebook page. Designed for flexibility, we hope that this graphic can serve to identify our group for a long time to come. Different species of birds will be used in various contexts, and we hope to make the logo available to members – on t-shirts, decals, and possibly some other merchandise.
