Major fundraiser features presentation on cottontail rabbit conservation
The Putnam Highlands Audubon Society will hold their Annual Spring Dinner Saturday, March 29, at 5 p.m. at the Taconic Outdoor Education Center. The event begins with a social hour and opening remarks by state Sen. Terry Gipson at 6 p.m., followed by a buffet dinner.
The keynote speaker is New York State Department of Environmental Conservation biologist Ron Novak, speaking on northeastern cottontail rabbit conservation efforts. A live auction will end the evening.
