Maricopa Audubon Society Birds in Maricopa County

Maricopa Audubon Meetings and Programs

Meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month, September through May.  Meetings start at 7:30 p.m., and feature a general membership meeting and guest speaker. Come early to browse our sales tables, have refreshments, and socialize with like-minded people.  Visitors are most welcome! 


Our September through April meetings are held at the:

Papago Buttes Church of the Brethren

2450 N 64th St. Scottsdale

northwest of 64th Street and Oak Street, which is between Thomas Road and McDowell. You may enter from either 64th Street, just north of Oak Street (if coming from the south you will have to make a "U" turn), or Oak Street just west of 64th Street, by the Elks Club. Turn right into the gravel parking lot.

Although there is no charge to attend our general membership meetings, the Annual Banquet does require a dinner reservation and associated cost. 

A pre-meeting dinner is held at Caddy Shack, 1405 N. Mill Avenue in Tempe (at the Rolling Hills Golf Course) for the September through April meetings.  Join us at 6 p.m. for a delicious meal (no-host), meet our guest speaker and say “howdy” to other birders.  Meals average $7.00 to $10.00.

John Alcock

After the Wildfire: Ten Years of Recovery from the Willow Fire

ASU professor emeritis, will speak on his 10-year plus "study" of Deer Creek in the Mazatzal Mountains where he has been recording the recovery of the South Fork Trail site from the devastating Willow Fire. Alcock will show that the chaparral zone along Deer Creek has made a remarkable rebound from the intense fire that swept through the Mazatzals in the summer of 2004.





His talk will make use of material from his recent University of Arizona book, After the Wildfire: Ten Years of Recovery from the Willow Fire. Dr. Alcocks’ book will be available for sale.
