Program and Cancellation Announcements

Jump to our announcement for the Rosemary Mosco Zoom meeting, August 20, 5 PM.

UPDATE: August 6, 2020
In lieu of the monthly in-person evening meetings, we hope to begin SMBAS Zoom presentations beginning in October, 2020. Announcements for these events will be posted, as always, on this blog.

In order to help keep people safer longer from Corona virus COVID-19 (also known as SARS-CoV-2 or novel coronavirus), SMBAS has officially canceled all field trips and in-person programs. We will continue to re-evaluate the situation. When there is no longer a risk for people gathering together, we will resume our field trips and meetings.

    HI Chuck,

    Thanks for your posts, I do enjoy them. RE: Morongo Valley, Something was posted recently telling how to get to your campsite, but nothing about when the bird walk/s are scheduled. Date, time. Can you send that info to me, just in case the trip goes and I can decide to be there? My choice was always to work it in with a couple of days in Big Bear but the trip timing never was right. Maybe now I can do it.

    Hope you are both well. Johanna Dawes

      We’re not expressing any official positions on solo birding. We have to assume that everyone will get and stay informed, and make decisions that are best for themselves. It seems that the older you are, the more underlying disorders (COPD, heart disease, etc.) you may have, and the more susceptible you are to COVID-19. See the later posting on WHO data
