CASPER’S CBC INFO:  The Christmas Bird Pre-count organizational meeting will be held in the Pronghorn Room at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department office at 3030 Energy Lane on December 12, 2013 from 7 PM to 8:30 PM.  Anyone interested in participating in the Christmas Bird Count on December 14, 2013 (contacts for more CBC info. are Chris Michelson—234-8726 or Stacy Scott—262-0055) is encouraged to come to this planning meeting. We will discuss the area (s) to be covered, what birds we may see on the count, and other aspects of the Christmas Bird Count.  Energy Lane is located just off of Highway 220 / CY Avenue west of the west side Walmart.  There are brown information signs indicating the Wyoming Game and Fish office turn-off, and the Silverfox Steakhouse (Armor’s) is right at the corner of Energy Lane and Hwy 220 (watch for the sign).  Energy Lane winds a bit, but stay on it to the bottom of the hill where it dead ends at the Wyo Game and Fish office.  There is also a sign at the gateway to the Game and Fish property.  We will be using the entrance on the west side of the building; look for the sign on the lawn indicating Handicap Access and Meeting rooms.

Ovens and/or microwaves are available. If an oven is needed, please let Rose-Mary (262-4861) know as it takes awhile to warm up the ovens.
