Carolina Bird Club, Coastal Wildlife Refuge Society, and USFWS: Partners for Refuges

Shaking Hands
Recently, the Carolina Bird Club met on the Outer Banks; members participated in a number of field trips, including many to national wildlife refuges in eastern North Carolina. To show their support for the refuges, CBC's board of directors authorized a monetary gift to the Coastal Wildlife Refuge Society, the non-profit "friends" group that supports these refuges. This gift, in addition to the club's annual support of the Wings Over Water wildlife festival, was presented to Society President Stanley Oliver by Skip Morgan, a member of the club's board.
