SPRING BIRD COUNT - May 4
Spring Bird Count is Saturday May 4 in all the counties of Illinois. I am looking for birders to spend the day or any part on the Champaign County Count. We organize in parties of 2 or 3 to cover specific assigned areas. I'm especially looking for help with Crystal Lake Park/Busey Woods and Homer Lake. Let me know if you are interested.

If you have not already done so, please consider
supporting CCAS as a “CCAS Friend.” As a member of the
National Audubon Society, you are also automatically a member of
the Champaign County Audubon Society; however, NAS has largely phased
out their dues sharing program in which CCAS once received a share
of the dues that you paid for National membership. When you become
a Friend of CCAS, we keep 100% of your CCAS Friend donation. This
support will help us to be financially self sufficient, while sharing
the same goals as National Audubon. Please click here
