The Quittapahilla Audubon Society is restarting its monthly programs.

Each of the all-ages programs will be held at 7 p.m. on a Wednesday inside Holy Trinity Lutheran Church at 723 Lehman St., Lebanon.

The series kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 28, when Fred Habegger will present a program titled “Morning has Broken,” featuring time-lapse videos and clips from the home, countryside, and waterways.

On Wednesday, Oct. 26, Rita Stima will present “Birding in Lebanon Valley.” Stima has been birding since 2011, and says that much of her work as a watercolor artist is inspired by time spent outdoors while birding.

On Wednesday, Nov. 16, Pennsylvania Parks and Forest Foundation president Marci Mowery will present “Exploring Your State Parks & Forests.”

In lieu of a program in December, a Christmas Social will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 14, but the programs continue again on Wednesday, March 22, with a program on grassland raptor conservation at Milton Hershey School by licensed bird bander and middle school science teacher Nate McKelvie.

On Wednesday, April 26, David Barber will present on the movement ecology of turkey vultures in North America. Barber works at the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary where he oversees the sanctuary’s geographic information system and long-term monitoring programs.

The group will also hold a field trip on Sunday, Nov. 6, at State Game Lands #145 for observation of local birds. Meet at 9 a.m. at the Colebrook trailhead of the Lebanon Valley Trail Trail. Call Leader Jim Fiorentino with questions at 717-269-0675.
