Linking Habit to Habitat: Shade Grown Coffee and Birds

Date: 7:30pm EST December 11, 2012

The monthly meeting of the Kent County Bird Club will be held Tuesday, December 11 at Heron Point in Chestertown, and will feature a program from Dr. Robert Rice of the Smithsonian Institution.

Different farming practices have dramatic effects on the birds which live in coffee-growing regions. Dr. Rice will share research demonstrating the benefits of shade-grown coffee for migratory and resident birds. We hope you can join us for the meeting, program and light refreshments afterwards. 

The meeting begins at 7:30 PM in Wesley Hall, in the Heron Point community at the end of East Campus Ave in Chestertown. East Campus Ave is the light on Washington Ave (MD-213) at the south edge of the Washington College campus. If headed north, turn right, if headed south, turn left off of Washington Ave. Follow East Campus Ave to the Heron Point community and bear right on Sassafras Dr, continuing to the large parking lot at the end. Wesley Hall is upstairs in the building on your right as you enter the parking area; enter through the large portico.
