The Glen Rose Bird Club will meet at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Holiday Inn Express in Glen Rose. Gary Marks will serve as guest speaker and share pictures from his recent trip to the Galapagos Islands, located off the coast of Ecuador.

Meanwhile, the club is excited about the progress of construction on the viewing deck at the bird sanctuary, located off the downtown square. The project is expected to be completed prior to Christmas.

The sanctuary is maintained by club members who fill the bird feeders and care for the plants.

The Bird Club includes individuals interested in learning more about birds, with only a couple of members who could be classified as experts. Anyone who has considered joining the group but felt they did not know enough about birds is encouraged to attend this month's meeting, which promising to be interesting for all bird lovers and others who would like to know more about them.
