For many reasons, an activity may be modified or its schedule changed. Check the details, meeting place, date and time of an activity first by consulting the regular updated Google Calendar of Activities. However, any activity can be changed, in the morning and at the meeting place, by the person in charge of the outing, should circumstances arise that make the outing impossible or impractical. If a site could not be visited or no longer seem to be of interest, another site could be substituted if necessary.
For environmental and economic issues, COBM encourages carpooling during Club activities. This is why activities always start from a point that is easily accessible to everyone.
We also encourage cost sharing. COBM proposes a uniform formula of $0.25 per kilometer travelled to be divided among all passengers, including the driver. For example, for an outing to George Montgomery Sanctuary, we calculate $0,25 x 80 km (round trip) for a total of $20,00. If there are four people in the car, the three passengers each pay $5,00 to the driver.
The Club des ornithologues de Brome-Missisquoi subscribes to the Code of Conduct of Regroupement QuébecOiseaux. As birdwatchers, we share our interest in avian wildlife and its environment and we are all concerned about protecting them. Our actions must therefore reflect these values. COBM invites all its members to follow its recommendations aiming at protecting birds, their habitats and the reputation of recreational ornithology.
