Annual Membership Meeting - September 24, 2021 at 5:30 pm

CHANGE - Due to the current COVID - 19 Delta variant surge, there has been a change in plans for the location/delivery of the Friends of Turnbull Annual Meeting on Friday, September 24, 2021. The program will be the same and the business covered will be the same, but instead of meeting at the Refuge Outdoor Classroom, the Annual Meeting will be held virtually over Zoom. We do hope that you will all plan to attend and enjoy the program and news of our Friends of Turnbull NWR organization.


During our FOT Annual Meeting report, we will cover the activities of the organization during the past year, the recent opening of the Nature Store in the Administration Building and make a presentation to a long-time community friend to our organization, Roger Hagenbuch, and confirm the service which Copy Junction is providing by selling consignment items from the Nature Store for us.

We also urge you to carefully consider joining in our leadership - the Board, and Committees of Store volunteering - as we need several additional members on the team.

The West Valley Outdoor Learning Center will be bringing us their Hawk and Owl Program from the WVOLC center over Zoom. The Zoom link will in in a Mailchimp email next week and on the website - Activities page. We will meet from 5:30 - 6:30 pm on Friday, September 24, 2021.


5:30 - 5:45 Welcome and Review of Friends' year, including activities and financial reports; election of new Board Members.
