Welcome to the Grand Rapids Audubon Club website
GRAC is on Summer Break
However, you can still take advantage of field trips throughout the summer months. And it's always time to plan ahead for our 2017-18 membership program schedule beginning in September with our guest speaker Helen Taylor from the Nature Conservancy.
GRAC Needs Your Help
Once again we are in need of a Junior Audubon leader. We are also in need of an Audubon Adventures chairperson. If you are interested in one of these positions, or know someone who is, please contact GRAC President John Chronowski at firstname.lastname@example.org
