The next meeting of the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society is our Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner.  It promises to be a most interesting and entertaining evening.  Not only will you be able to visit friends and fellow Auduboners, we will be having a great presentation by Dr. David Angerstein who has worked with conservation organizations around the world studying a variety of wildlife.  His talk will focus on his experiences in conservation and wildlife rehabilitation in Central and South America.

We will be honoring Dr. Cesar Mendez, superintendent of the Franklin Mountains State Park, for his years of working to protect the Franklin Mountains and the Park.

Dinner will be part of the evening's activities, and we have a number of delicious menu items to choose from.  This year there will be two vegetarian options and two meat options.
