2017 Youth Art Check crop

The Carroll County Bird Club presented a check for $322.00 to Bear Branch Nature Center.

This money was generated from the Youth Art Contest sponsored by the club and supported by the MOS. Thirteen of the young artists donated their work to be offered in a silent auction to benefit the nature center.  All artwork was on display at Bear Branch from April 22nd to May 19th.  Shown in the photo is Nicole Myers, Naturalist at Bear Branch Nature Center accepting the check.

The Carroll County Bird Club was founded in 1979.  Early meetings were held in members’ homes.  Today, the club meets at the Carroll Nonprofit Center which is located at 225 Clifton Boulevard in Westminster, Maryland. 

Meetings are scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month except in the months of June, July, and August.  In January, a holiday party takes the place of the regular meeting.   Meetings begin at 7:00pm with a brief period for socializing, followed by a guest speaker. 

The club also sponsors field trips throughout the year.  These may be to local birding spots or on occasion to more exotic locales in other parts of the country.
