Christmas Bird Count on Buffalo Bayou @ Houston Audubon's Edith L. Moore Sanctuary
Dec 31 all-day

This is one of the few CBCs that is set almost entirely in an urban environment. The count circle does contain a few areas of undeveloped land that usually hold a few surprises since they are surround by development. It is possible to see up to 15 species of sparrows on this count, including the elusive Henslow’s and Grasshopper Sparrows. Other “Special Birds” seen over the past several years have been: Hooded Merganser, American Bittern, Solitary Sandpiper, American Woodcock, Common Ground-Dove, Black Phoebe, Couch’s Kingbird, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Spotted Towhee, Eastern Towhee, Rusty Blackbird, Purple Finch and Pine Siskin.There are two ways to participate: (1) Be a Field Observer – Join one of the teams in the field. (2) Be a Feeder/Yard Watcher – Because so much of the Buffalo Bayou CBC area is residential, Feeder Watchers (those who stay at home and observe their feeder, yard and/or neighborhood) are extremely important to the count and greatly increase the efficiency of the count by observing species that otherwise would not be seen, such as hummingbirds.

Climate Change Reading Group @ Axelrad Beer Garden
Jan 4 @ 6:30 pm

Image result for houston sierra clubWhat does climate change mean for Houston? More Harvey-like severe weather events, more devastating storm surge, more energy use dependent on fossil fuels, wider spread tropical disease, or more heat index days and ozone? If you are interested in learning about climate change and identifying ways Houstonians can make a difference, then join the Houston Sierra Club reading group dedicated to climate change. The reading group will meet every month to discuss an article, book excerpt, or podcast related to climate change, with special focus on Houston. There will be four meetings at Axelrad Beer Garden at 6:30 PM. Each date has a specific theme:

10/5 Climate Change Overview
11/2 Climate Change in Texas
12/7 Solutions, Houston Style
1/4 Imagining the Future

The group will be limited to 15 people, and attendees will receive a confirmation and link to online assignments before the end of September. Be a part of this informative reading group by RSVPing online.
