Chairman Bob Honig opened the meeting by welcoming the group to 19921 He announced that Treasurer Ed Lebeau was available to collect dues and provide membership information. Bob opened the floor for discussion of the proposed budget as introduced at last month's meeting. A motion was immediately made to approve the budget. It was approved unanimously. Ed Lebeau's treasurer's report contained "good news and bad news." The good news is that we have "lots of money," but the bad news is we could have more. He announced that 60X of the membership still owe dues for this year. Librarian, Julie D'ablaing announced that Steven Williams' "Checklist of the Birds of the Upper Texas Coast" is now available in the library. Bob invited discussion about bird sightings.

Ed continued our tour through mountains, marshes and seashores, discovering the diverse wildlife and habitat in Texas. He also stressed an environmental message: public lands become parks and refuges because people thought they should be and worked to create them.
