June Program: Michelle Belden Presents...
Michelle Belden will present some recent films entitled The Environmental Cinematography of Michelle Belden for the Bastrop County Audubon’s June 19 meeting. One is a short film The Rookery at High Island, which evolved from months of painstaking editing to capture the history, ecology, conservation and natural beauty of this world-class destination of birders. David Mitchell narrates and co-edited. Adding to her tenure of membership in BCAS, Michelle became a Master Naturalist and helps with the Lost Pines chapter in their teaching programs. We will also see a short film of trainee Master Naturalists on a field experience in Buescher State Park. She has shared other films at bastropcountyaudubon,org, under “Visual Resources” (whales, whooping cranes).
Annual Meeting and Election: Slate of nominees for election of officers and board members will be announced, open to nominees from the floor. Also the annual financial reports of the Chapter.
We will have dinner at 5:00 p.m. at Cedar’s Mediterranean Grill, 904 College Street, Bastrop. For the dinner, RSVP SSimon1221@yahoo.com.
We meet at the First National Bank building on Hwy 71 in Bastrop on Tuesday, May 15 beginning at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30. Please join us for an evening of exploration and education.
