Chapter meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at: Pinetop-Lakeside Town Council Chambers, 325 W. White Mountain Blvd., Pinetop-Lakeside. Map

At the next White Mountain Audubon meeting on Wed., July 3, we are planning a special tribute to Mary Ellen and Chuck Bittorf. They have led White Mountain Audubon and many other community groups for more than 25 years and they have decided to step down. This celebration is a surprise to the Bittorfs. We are asking for any word of thanks to them or a story of your own to be sent to us so we can compile a book of memories. We would like to include photos so send them as well. Send write-ups or photos to lizjern@frontiernet.net or suesitko1@gmail.com. We want this to be a community-wide tribute, so plan to attend.

The meeting will still be held at Pinetop-Lakeside Town Hall, 325 W. White Mountain Blvd., Lakeside, AZ. We will start at 6:30 pm. It is very casual. We will resume our scheduled programs at the next meeting on August 7.

The meeting starts at 6:30 pm. Please join us for an interesting evening. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome. Questions? Call: (928) 532-1510.

BIRDING IN THE WHITE MOUNTAINS In addition to regular White Mountain Audubon programs, WMAS will offer a 4-psrt series about many species of birds found in Navajo and Apache Counties. The Power Point presentations will be given at the Pinetop-Lakeside Town Hall, 325 S. White Mountain Blvd. in Pinetop-Lakeside, from 5 – 6 pm on the following dates: Friday, June 7, Friday, July 26 Friday, August 23 Friday, Sept. 13 Follow-up field trips of ~1 mile (optional) will be held the next day from 6 or 7 am at various birding hotspots. Although the program will be geared for beginning birders, there will be challenges for experienced birders too. Each session will contain different material. (Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs only allowed in carry packs.) Bring binoculars, water, and hiking shoes on field trips.
