Message from new Vice President

This morning brought the first hint of Fall to the Lowcountry, which is exciting for us naturalists. For me it means Fall bird and butterfly migration, flowering and fruiting plants, and the promise of reduced humidity and mosquito populations! I had hoped it would also mean a return to in-person gatherings with my naturalist tribe, but alas, Delta has a different idea on this point.
Do not despair! The CMNA has plenty of opportunities to stay connected. The CMNA Board will continue holding our virtual monthly Think & Drinks with small group Walk & Talks, as well as our Litter Sweeps. There is discussion of a periodic informal Ramble for anyone interested in in-person group naturalizing, and other pop-up events as the Fall progresses.

CMNA Vice President

My name is Christine Magnarella Ray, Naturalist class of Spring 2019. I am serving as CMNA Board Vice President until the next Board elections. As Vice President, I am also head of the Communications Committee, and we need your help!

Exciting plans mean nothing if no one shows up. That’s where the Communications Committee comes in. We will meet virtually on September 22 at 7pm to formulate a plan on how to keep the CMNA membership informed of all that is going on. We need your input and talents! If you are a writer, like to do internet research, enjoy using Facebook, or are even a little tech savvy – we welcome your help!
Be on the lookout for the Sign-Up Genius that will include the zoom link to this event, or you can email me at Let’s keep this tribe strong and connected!
