An Important Message from the GWVAS

The Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) has discontinued the request that people stop feeding birds. Although an exact cause of the illness that was affecting songbirds has yet to be identifed, several potential causes have been ruled out, and the PGC has now reported that people may resume feeding, and providing water for, birds.

The PGC and the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet) continue to search for a cause of the illness.  Observers may continue to report sick and/or dying birds at


COVID-19 News

As we prepare during the next couple of months for the autumn season of activities, we will continue to monitor the virus situation and determine if GWVAS activities, including future meetings, should be cancelled or held via Zoom when possible. For now, we will continue to conduct monthly membership meetings via Zoom.

Please visit our Calendar of Events for the most up-to-date information concerning GWVAS activities.


**Important Announcement**

After becoming aware that organizations similar to the GWVAS require participants in certain activities to sign a liability release form, the GWVAS Officers and Directors have decided to follow the lead of those organizations by requiring that those participating in certain in-person activities sign a release form. While we apologize for the inconvenience, we are trying to act in the Chapter’s best interests.

A downloadable release form in pdf format is available by clicking HERE. We ask that participants complete the form in advance and that they bring the completed form to the activity. For those who lack internet access, or who otherwise are unable to obtain and complete the form in advance, we will have blank forms available at the activity location.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience as we weather these uncertain times.

Thank you for your understanding.


Please continue to safely enjoy the outdoors whenever you can.
