On Thursday November 14, the Otter Creek Audubon Society will be holding our Annual Dinner and Meeting, a chance for us to get together with the OCAS community and celebrate the work we have done over the past year, and the volunteers who have made that work possible.

Our featured speaker this year will be Bridget Butler, The Bird Diva. As a naturalist with over 20 years of experience, Bridget is on a mission to tap into each person’s innate passion for nature and to turn that passion into action. In her presentation titled Time to Fly, Bridget, will explore the fall migration of birds leaving our area, and those that are coming to us. Where did they all go and why? Is it even worth it to go birding after the fall migration? Um, YES!
