Eyes on Owls! Live Owl Program! Bedford, MA

Sunday, April 29, 2018 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM

Field naturalist Marcia Wilson and wildlife photojournalist Mark Wilson display six lively owls separately and walk them around the audience for close-views, photos, and questions. The live owl program will be preceded with a short narrative slide presentation and a rousing "hooting lesson" with audience participation. Great for the young and young at heart (recommended ages 5 - 99+). Mark and Marcia Wilson will share the field marks, signs, and naturalist's skills that you can use to find wild owls without disturbing them, while introducing you to six live owls up close!

LWCF campaign kickoff

Saturday, April 21, 2018 12:00 AM

Join AMC Boston's Young Members and Conservation Committees for an (almost) Earth Day kickoff of our Land and Water Conservation Fund campaign! The LWCF is a hugely important program that has helped to create many of the outdoor recreation spaces AMC members enjoy. Without action from Congress, it will expire on September 30, 2018, so we are working to encourage our legislators to take action and preserve our outdoor spaces. Join us to learn more about the LWCF, send a postcard to your legislator, and enjoy some pizza with other AMC Boston members!
