General Meetings

    IN-PERSON MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED THROUGH SPRING OF 2023; JOIN US ON ZOOM

 

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 6:45 p.m.; come early for social time from 6:00 – 6:45. 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 meets at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Conference Center at 4801 Rockhill Rd, KCMO 64110 EXCEPT AS NOTED. Some meetings are held in other locations due to scheduling conflicts at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center.

There are often opportunities to join the speaker and members of the BAS Host Committee for dinner prior to the meeting. Please subscribe to the chapter’s monthly email (BurroughsAnnounce) to receive details of these outings.

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

 

Impacts of Light Pollution on Insects, Birds and Wildlife

 

Tuesday, Mar 21 on ZOOM – 6:30 p.m. Presentation by DeeAnn Gregory. In 2017, the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine was awarded to scientists who isolated the genes which control circadian rhythm (the internal clock) in all living things. This discovery, combined with other advances in science, has led to a greater understanding of the impacts of artificial light at night (ALAN). This presentation provides an overview of these impacts on insects, birds and other wildlife. To request the ZOOM meeting link, please send an email to: zoom AT burroughs DOT org.
