2020 Birdathon Postponed
 
 
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the need to practice social distancing, and the closure of many parks and natural areas, our annual Birdathon will be postponed this year. While counters could go out on their own and stay away from others, most of the productive birding areas are closed to public access making it difficult to hold an effective fundraiser.  To that end, the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society will look at holding the event in the fall of 2020, assuming restrictions due to the pandemic are lifted and sites have reopened.

The Board of the EPTPAS thanks you for your continued support through our Birdathon fundraiser. These uncertain times have required all of us to adapt for the greater good.  We look forward to being able to resume our normal activities soon.


Sincerely yours,

Scott Cutler
President
El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society


Next General Meeting


As efforts to reduce risks of community spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 continue, the date of our next general meeting remains uncertain.  In the meantime, you can hone your backyard birding skills by playing Backyard Birdwatching Bingo, using the card our Field Trips Chair Star Posada has prepared.  Check it out!

Welcome!


The El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon  Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society.  We have a large territory, all of Texas west of the Pecos River ("Trans-Pecos").  Our members are found throughout the Trans-Pecos, but most live in the region's largest city, El Paso.  Birds, birding, wildlife, the environment, and our community are the concerns of the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society.
