Inside this issue: Thursday, November 13, 2008, 6:00 PM Beloved Audubon Gems on Rare Public Display
January Chapter Meeting & Program at the McNay, Thursday, Jan. 8, 2009—6 PM January's chapter meeting will be a special outing to the McNay Art Museum for their exhibition "Prints Gone Wild: John James Audubon." The date will be the same as always, the second Thursday (Jan. 8), which has two benefits for us. First, the McNay charges no admission on Thursday evenings. Second, prints curator Lyle Williams will be giving a public lecture on the exhibition that evening in the Lawson Print Gallery. The lecture starts at 6 PM, a half hour earlier than our normal meeting time and an hour earlier than our usual program time. So we encourage you all to make a note on your calendars to arrive early. After the lecture, we will have until 9 PM to view these magnificent prints.

The McNay display has 20 mostly hand-colored lithographs from the books on birds (double-elephant size) and quadrupeds (imperial size). Featured in “Prints Gone Wild: John James Audubon” are three great Texas subjects, Texas Wolf, Nine-banded Armadillo, and Texas Rabbit, plus one of Audubon’s most famous images, American Flamingo. This particular lithograph, printed on a sheet of paper nearly four feet long, has not been on public display for over 15 years. A few of these lithographs belong to the McNay but have never been exhibited before. Others have been loaned by San Antonio-area collectors. Come and join us for a “dazzling visual encyclopedia of America’s native flora and fauna.”

February 2009: Reproductive Strategies (of Wildlife)
Thursday, February 12, 2009, 6:30 PM
Valentine Program Reproductive Strategies of Wildlife Join Richard Heilbrun, TPWD Wildlife Biologist, for an informative and lighthearted presentation on "Reproductive Strategies of Wildlife." Selfish genes, nest parasitism, and explosive breeding strategies are par for the course in this Valentine special! Richard is an Urban Wildlife Biologist with Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. He holds a B.S. and a Masters in Wildlife Ecology from Texas A&M and created this presentation while guest lecturing at UTSA. Richard provides technical guidance to landowners around San Antonio and assists city officials in creating wildlife-friendly city ordinances and in protecting wildlife habitat.

The Unexpected President
- Harry Noyes -
Our November awardand-anniversary banquet was a triumph. I cannot count how many compliments I received for that marvelous event. Not that I deserved them. As you may recall, I was suffering from a serious ailment during the critical weeks leading up to the event, and I had to hand off the responsibility for planning and arranging it to my colleagues. Special praise and gratitude are due to Tony Wood, who negotiated the details with Los Patios; Patty Pasztor, who arranged a wonderful pro-
gram; Caryl Swann, who handled the RSVPs and finances; and Susan Hughes, whose expert advice and historical knowledge of Bexar Audubon saved us from several potential blunders. But I would be remiss not to also praise and thank numerous other people who made the banquet a success: the generous and highly professional management and staff at Los Patios; John Karger and his colleagues (human and avian) from Last Chance Forever for an outstanding talk on how falconry contributes to bird conservation; James Middleton, San Antonio Audubon Society’s expert bird carver who created our magnificently realistic, hand-painted Conservation Hero quail trophies; and the 70 participants whose presence and conversation made the banquet the festive occasion it was meant to be. Finally, but perhaps most important of all, because we are thanking them not only for their role at the banquet but for a lifetime of service to our community and its
environment, I must cite the three inaugural recipients of the new Bexar Audubon Society Conservation Hero trophy: Bill Sinkin, founder and sustainer of Solar San Antonio; and Ruth Lofgren and Ernie Roney for decades of work to protect Mitchell Lake and their continued volunteer work there. Let me conclude by urging all of us to follow their examples as best we can. (Continued on page 6)

Thank goodness for the extraordinarily skilled and dedicated people who constitute the core of Bexar Audubon Society’s team.
Trinity River Center is flagship site for National Audubon Society
with the Blackland Prairie, bottomland hardwood forest and surrounding wetlands. It’s amazing that this site was once an eyesore, but now is helping nature come back to life.” Built on top of a reclaimed former landfill, the Trinity River Audubon Center is the first major signature development for the Trinity River Corridor Project, a $2 billion City of Dallas public works project. A flagship location for the National Audubon Society, TRAC is located just eight minutes from downtown Dallas on 120 acres of the Great Trinity Forest—the largest urban bottomland hardwood forest in the United States. The Center will serve as the gateway to the Great Trinity Forest, which is more than 6,000 acres in all. In addition to bird watching and outdoor conservation programs and clubs, the Center serves as a teaching facility for 25,000 students.

Calling All Texas Bird Watchers
More eyes needed to tally state birds
The diversity of habitats and birds in Texas makes bird watchers in the state the envy of nature lovers elsewhere. Many stunning species readily visit bird feeders, and may be attracted to your own backyard. Scientists are asking Texas bird watchers to report what they see at their feeders through Project FeederWatch. “Being a FeederWatcher is easy and fun,” says project leader David Bonter from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. “Scientists learn something new from the project each year, whether it’s about the movements of common backyard birds or unusual sightings of rarely seen species.” For example, Texas has recently seen the spread of two dove species throughout the state: the White-winged Dove and the Eurasian Collared-Dove. As the name implies, the latter species is not native to the United States. Will this new dove have an impact on populations of native doves? “We need to hear from more bird watchers in Texas to get an accurate picture of what’s happening with bird populations from year to year,” says Bonter. “Anyone who sees birds at feeders can help.” The 2008-09 season of Project FeederWatch is underway and runs through April 3. Participants can sign up at any time. FeederWatchers track the numbers and kinds of birds seen at feeders each week and then send the information to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The information they provide helps generate the world’s largest database on feeder-bird populations. FeederWatchers across North America submitted more than 115,000 checklists during the 2007-08 season, documenting unusual bird sightings, winter movements, and shifting ranges-information scientists use to monitor the health of the birds and of the environment. Project FeederWatch welcomes participants of all ages and skill levels. To learn more and to sign up, visit www.feederwatch.org or call 800.843.2473. In return for the $15 fee ($12 for Lab members) participants receive a FeederWatcher’s Handbook, a birdidentification poster, a calendar, instructions, and the FeederWatch annual report, Winter Bird Highlights, summarizing the season’s findings. Photos are available at www.feederwatch.org; visit the “Explore Data” section of the web site to find the top 25 birds reported in your state, rare bird sightings, and bird summaries. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is a membership institution dedicated to interpreting and conserving the earth’s biological diversity through research, education, and citizen science focused on birds. Visit the Lab’s web site at http:// www.birds.cornell.edu.
More than 10,000 people attended opening weekend at the new Audubon Center in Dallas, offering a powerful example of how Audubon connects people with nature. Twice the number of visitors expected were drawn by workshops on topics such as backpacking, paddling, outdoor cooking, how to live near urban wildlife, planting community gardens and more. Kids joined artsand-crafts projects; lectures included how to landscape with native species, make compost, and raise bees and chickens. Highlights at the center include hiking, bird-watching, hands-on exhibits, conservation and outdoor-skills workshops, yoga classes and a children's discovery garden. Anne Brown, vice president of National Audubon Society, said, “We had an amazing turnout opening weekend as the community was ready to see the Center and to enjoy all the activities that we’d planned. Also, the building is uniquely designed so that everywhere you are, you are drawn to the outside,

Peter Berle Environmental Award Announced
Last November in New York, Audubon President John Flicker announced that the Century Foundation, in cooperation with the National Audubon Society, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Environmental Law Section of the New York State Bar Association, and former colleagues of Peter Berle, have created The Peter A. A. Berle Environmental Integrity Award. To be given annually to up to two U.S. citizens who provide innovative leadership in helping confront the challenges of climate change, renewable energy, depletion of the oceans, species extinction, air, water and soil contamination, and the urban environment, the first award (which includes a prize of $2,000) will be presented in 2009. Nominations should be submitted via e-mail on or before February 1, 2009 to BerleAward@tcf.org.

Hail our Conservation Heroes!
(continued from page 2) Even if we never reach their level of achievement, we can support them and by all working together we can, as Isaac Newton put it, “stand on the shoulders of giants.” If you aren’t sure what you can do or want to do, contact me: let’s talk. Finally, some personal good news. My illness, which turned out to be anxiety/ panic attacks (probably related to my retirement from the civil service being more of a “what do I do now?” shock than I expected) is under control. (In time for me to attend the banquet, thankfully.) The pills reduce my energy level, but I think I will be able to fulfill my Audubon duties. If I ever feel that I cannot, you have my word that I will resign and allow someone else to take over. (By the way, my thanks to Vice President Tony Wood for filling in during the worst phase of my illness.) Let me conclude by repeating my lesson-learned from the previous column: “There is no substitute for your health. Use it while you can. Take that trip to Europe now. Write that novel now. START YOUR VOLUNTEER WORK NOW, whether for Bexar Audubon or any other worthy cause.

Audubon Issues Statements on Changing of the Guard
"Audubon believes the election ushered in a new era of hope for our environment; and the people, birds and other wildlife that depend on it," said Betsy Loyless, Senior Vice President, National Audubon Society, as part of a teleconference with reporters and representatives of wildlife conservation organizations. To hear audio of the news conference and other statements including those by Mike Daulton, Audubon's Legislative Director, visit http://web1.audu bon.org/news/pressRoom.php.
Bexar Tracks Creating Sustainable Landscapes Focus of First Comprehensive Report
The Sustainable Sites Initiative, a partnership that includes The University of Texas at Austin's Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, invites public comment on a new report that offers the most comprehensive set of voluntary guidelines yet developed for sustainable landscapes. Titled "Guidelines and Performance Benchmarks Draft 2008," it provides more than 50 prerequisites and credit options that cover everything from initial site selection and design to construction and maintenance. The Sustainable Sites Initiative, which also includes the American Society of Landscape Architects and the United States Botanic Garden, is asking for comments before January 20, 2009 on the report that is available for download at www.sustainablesites.org. The report is timely because of increased concerns about such environmental issues as scarce resources, climate change, waste, and air and water pollution. Landscapes have the potential to use resources more efficiently and to improve air and water quality, and they can reduce the urban heat island effect and remove carbon dioxide, an important greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, from the atmosphere. Reprinted from In the Flow, the weekly freshwater news wrapup and analysis prepared by the River Systems Institute.
Ya Gotta Let ‘em Know You’re Out There!
In all my years as an environmental activist, one of the things I have heard most often is “Oh, my U.S. Representative (Senator, State Rep, Councilperson, etc.) is _________. S/he’s so unconcerned about the environment there’s no point in contacting him/her. It’s just a waste of my time.” I have heard almost as often, from the kind of representative mentioned in the preceding sentences, “Well, I’m surprised about your position on this issue. You’re the only one who has ever contacted me about it.” My message to all who read this is: Write or call your political reps! If you have the sort of rep who doesn’t give a fig about what concerns you the most, that rep is the one who should get the most contacts. If enough of his/her constituents needle him/her, some very rigid stances may change, even with vested interests calling a lot of the shots. In the end a political leader has to win votes, and votes come from individuals, not corporations. If the leader believes there is a groundswell about a particular issue—let’s say, global warming—that leader just might come around sooner rather than later. You have a voice—use it! Your message to the representative doesn’t have to be long or involved. Postcards to Congress don’t have to go through the screening that letters do, and there are always phone calls and e-mails. But the contact has to be made, and made as often as possible. And don’t forget to write letters to newspaper editors! Loretta Van Coppenolle Alamo Group Conservation Co-Chair BACK

1. It has often been assumed that less sunny places can not use solar, but Germany is doing it despite its location. Part of this is because they are using amazing cables that lose no more than 15% energy over very long distances. 2. There has been much illegal logging going on in the world, and it still goes on today. When prized merbau trees were cut down in Papua, the locals were paid $11 per cubic meter. By the time they reached China, their value was $240 per cubic meter. When they arrived as flooring in the US, they brought $2288 per cubic meter. Building a new home? Replacing flooring, paneling, siding? Check on the history of the wood you use. This is one way to stand for law and sustainability. 3. When using a tea kettle, only fill it for the amount of water you are going to use. This will save heating times and also save water.
