Friends of Turnbull NWR 2021 Annual Membership Meeting - Friday, September 24

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.

Date: September 24, 2021; 5:30 - 6:30 pm
