Coronavirus Cancellations Update - All May, 2020 Events Cancelled

The Governor of the State of Wisconsin has extended the Safer At Home order to May 26, 2020.  As a result, all May events (field trips, WMBD events at Myrick and Trempealeau NWR, morning bird walks, and our monthly meeting) have now been cancelled for the month of May.  Please check back in late May to see what the status is for our June Potluck and bird walk. The spring migration is underway and you are still encouraged to get outside and take part in solo activities like bird watching.  We hope that you do so and share your sightings on the Coulee Region Audubon Sightings group page on Facebook! This will end!  In the meantime, please stay safe, follow social distancing and the Safer At Home guidelines, and help us all to do what is necessary to put an end to this pandemic! Good birding and Happy Spring, The Coulee Region Audubon Society Board of Directors

Coronavirus Impact on Coulee Region Audubon

The Coulee Region Audubon Society is following state and national guidelines and has therefore cancelled all planned activities for the month of April as well as the World Migratory Bird Day event that was planned for May 2, 2020 at Myrick Park. At this point, we will leave our May events on the schedule.  They will be re-evaluated later this month when direction is received from state and national authorities on how to proceed. During this trying time, we urge all members and the public to take this threat seriously and to follow state and federal guidelines for shelter in place and safe social distancing. We also encourage you to enjoy nature during this time.  Getting outdoors and doing some hiking, birding, or simply soaking in the sunshine is a great stress reliever.  Please take care to keep safe social distancing practices while taking part in these activities! We hope that all are taking care and staying safe! Sincerely, Coulee Region Audubon Society Board of Direc
