2016 Message from the President

A cauldron…a scurry…a leash!

     A murder…a cast…a parliament!

          A knot…a bale…a maelstrom!!

What in the world? Did someone put a dictionary in a blender? No!!

All of the strange terms above are the names given to groups of animals of some sort! (See the answers below!)

And more importantly, they are animals that someone visiting Blatchley Nature Study Club might see on a given day!

Here's another one for you…a member! Definition: someone who is a part of the Blatchley Nature Study Club!

And this group of "animals" does some great things to bring nature information, education, and appreciation to the people of our local community. Members are responsible for programs, nature-preserve upkeep and preservation, and for sharing a common love of the natural world with all that they meet. These are the kind of characteristics that are a help to "classify" our membership!

Won't you join us? Hope to see you at a meeting or event this year!

Looking forward to another great year!!
