In this edition of the Saw-whet newsletter, there are two President’s messages: one from outgoing president Mary Beth Yarbrough and one from incoming president Rebecca Harriett. We can’t thank Mary Beth enough for her wonderful leadership over the past two years. She has been an exceptional president for our chapter. Richard Stromberg is featured in our Member Profile. A founding member of our chapter and a Golden Circle volunteer - simply put, he’s a legend. On the heels of the hottest year on record, Ellen Schwalenstocker has written a compelling article regarding how VMN’s can offer help. And Jennifer Flitton Adams has written about the importance of native plants.
