Upcoming Meeting
January 4, 2018
We have no presentations during December due to the holidays.

We do have two special events though: our Dec. 7 Holiday Party and the Dec. 16 Christmas Bird Count (see below).
Our next meeting will be Jan. 4, 2018

The program schedule for 2018 is being worked on now, so return back later when we will have more details.

Join us for the Tuckerton Area Christmas Bird Count on Dec. 16, 2017. If you haven't done a CBC before, try it. You just might get hooked into this international event. Less experienced birders are particularly encouraged to participate.  You will be paired up with those who have more experience, and it will be a great learning experience.

We meet in the Tuckerton Seaport parking lot at 7am to pair up and get checklists. Lunch is from 11am - 12pm at the Dynasty Diner in Tuckerton. We return to the Hunting Shanty at the Tuckerton Seaport at 5pm for the countdown. The club supplies pizza and soda while we do the species count.  If you can't attend for the whole day, that is fine; you can contribute by joining just the morning or afternoon sessions.

Contact the count coordinator Linda Gangi (ltgangi at for more information.

The general public is welcome to all of our meetings; meetings are free with no reservations required and light refreshments are provided.  For further information, please contact Sue Puder at 609-698-2106 or send an email to


The doors open at 6:30, and the meetings begin at 7 PM.
