IN PERSON MEETINGS at the Baker Wetlands Discovery Center (BWDC):
                                                           SUNDAY AUGUST 29 - 7 PM

For this meeting, and all future meetings at BWDC, we will be following the guidelines established by the Discovery Center.  Currently all people inside the building are required to wear facemasks, and there is a 25-person maximum on meeting size.  AAL will continue to monitor the Discovery Center guidelines for changes between now and the August meeting. Whatever guidelines are in place on August 29 will be the guidelines that we will follow.
The post meeting public observing session will occur as soon as it gets dark after the meeting. The meeting typically ends about 8:00 to 8:15.
