In response to continuing requests for another Crow Patrol outing, not only for those who had been on the wait list from prior events, but also for the growing numbers of Crow watchers who would like to partake in this amazing avian spectacle, Lara Mataac, a very dedicated volunteer for the Merrimack River Watershed Council has organized an upcoming event in close collaboration with MRWC Executive Director, Rusty Russell.  Here is her notice and invitation, and she already has over 40 people signed up for Sunday afternoon!

Dear Friends,

If you were not able to make the February 10 “Crow Show” event and would like to see the Lawrence crows, the Merrimack River Watershed Council (MRWC) will be holding another, less formal crow viewing event on Sunday, March 3, at 4:45 PM.

We expect that the meeting place will be the Bashara Boathouse at 1 Eaton Street in Lawrence – however, it’s possible the crows will change their roosting location between now and then, so we will confirm the meeting place via email at least 24 hours prior to the event.

At the event, we’ll watch the crows gather for the nightly roost and enjoy some hot cocoa and conversation. Please note there will not be an art gallery or formal presentation component this time, but “Crow Patrol” member and photographer Craig Gibson will be there to share his crow experiences and enthusiasm. You can learn more about the Crow Patrol and Craig at

If you would like to go, please sign up at

We hope you can join us!
