Meetings and programs are presented on the second Monday of each month from September through June, unless otherwise advertised. Both are free and open to all.


There is usually a general club meeting beginning at 7:15 p.m., featuring recounts of recent field trips, notice of upcoming trips and programs, discussion of noteworthy bird sightings, reports from club officers, and other business. This is followed by the invited speaker presenting the program for the month.


All program meetings are held at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 867 North Pleasant Street, Amherst, unless otherwise advertised. The Church is on the east side of North Pleasant Street, just north of the University of Massachusetts School of Education. There is ample parking.


From the traffic light in the center of Amherst (Bank of America corner, intersection of Main Street with Pleasant): drive north through town on Pleasant Street until you reach a roundabout (a.k.a. rotary or traffic circle) at the intersection of Triangle Street. Continue around the circle to the 3rd exit, toward UMass (North Pleasant Street). Just before the next traffic light is a large, brick, UMASS sign. Turn right at the light to remain on N. Pleasant. Drive through campus (the Campus Pond and Fine Arts Center will be on your left). When you reach an intersection with another Roundabout, continue around to the 2nd  exit (still North Pleasant).  The Immanuel Lutheran Church is on the right 0.3 mile beyond the Roundabout.


From the center of North Amherst at the traffic light (intersection of Pine Street and Meadow Street with North Pleasant): drive south on North Pleasant Street. The church will be on your left 0.75 mile from the North Amherst center traffic light.
