General Meetings



On the third Tuesday of each month in spring and fall (unless otherwise noted), we invite members and non-members alike to enjoy a free educational program and learn what is new in your Audubon chapter! Meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.. A short business meeting precedes the program and includes conservation news, discussion of recent bird sightings, and details of upcoming field trips and other events.

Burroughs Audubon Society’s spring General Meetings are held in March, April and May. Fall General Meetings are held in September, October and November.


Turkey Vultures: Taking a Closer Look at an Underappreciated Bird


Tuesday, Sept 19 on ZOOM – 6:30 p.m. Presentation by Missouri Master Naturalist Dianne Van Dien. Turkey vultures are often overlooked and disdained by our culture, despite their ecological importance. Dianne explains how turkey vultures are perfectly adapted for a life of scavenging and play a crucial role in reducing the spread of diseases. She’ll also highlight their nesting, roosting, foraging, and migration behaviors through the lens of her own study and observations of turkey vultures in Missouri. View a recording of this meeting until Wednesday, Oct. 18.


Birds of Panama


Tuesday, Oct 17 on ZOOM – 6:30 p.m. Presentation by Presentation by Pati Rouzer of the Sierra Club. Panama has recorded 1,002 species of birds, an incredible number typical of the neotropics. Most are relatively easy to see in the extensive mosaic of ecosystems squeezed between two oceans, due to the nation’s reasonable roads, established birding trails, ecolodges, fine food and excellent guides. Pati will share a general photographic overview of Panama’s remarkable aviflora. Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
