Interested in birds? The oldest established bird club in the USA is right here in Minnesota!! Join our monthly meetings, which feature interesting speakers, education, fun, and entertainment for the parrot enthusiast. Learn about proper nutrition and behavior, foraging, and more – Plus gain an understanding of birds in the wild & conservation efforts!!!
The Minnesota Companion Bird Association meets at the Maple Grove Community Center, 12951 Weaver Lake Rd, Maple Grove, Minnesota.
No birds are allowed at our meetings, to keep everyone's feathered friends safe, due to the possible transfer of avian diseases.
Most MCBA bird club meetings feature speakers discussing various aspects of aviculture - bird behavior, health care, conservation, environmental issues, nutrition, and more. Two meetings per year feature fundraisers with food, fun and a casual atmosphere. We schedule several national and international bird-related speakers each year to inform and entertain our members. To help cover the costs of these special programs, we sometimes have to charge a small additional admission fee for both members and visitors.
Meeting Protocol and Visitor
All members, guests, and visitors must sign in upon entering the meeting room. After a short social period, meetings are called to order for announcements about MCBA events and other topics. The main program (1 - 2 hours) follows these announcements. Children are always welcome, but parents are expected to remind them to remain quiet during the presentation. There is no smoking allowed in the facility.
The MCBA loves to have visitors join us at our bird club meetings! Visitors and guests of members may attend one meeting free of charge, but must pay an admission fee of $5.00 per meeting (More when there is an out-of-town speaker) thereafter, should they choose not to join by that time.
We are excited about our 2020 Schedule of Events!
(Subject to change based on availability)
DUE TO COVID OUR MONTHLY MEETINGS ARE ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. The Board is actively looking for opportunities to keep our club members connected.
