Tuesday, Feb. 26, 7 p.m.—RUTLAND— Rutland County Audubon will host an event with members Sue and Marv Elliott on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. at Rutland’s Grace Church. The Elliotts have visited more than half of the Texas state parks looking for regular and rare birds. They have many beautiful photos of these birds to share, along with stories of the connection between birds and the protection of habitat.

The couple has been active in Rutland County Audubon since 1998. Sue frequently leads the monthly walk at West Rutland Marsh and is the e-bird reviewer for Rutland County. Marv is a past president of Rutland Audubon, current treasurer and an avid photographer.

The event is free and open to the public. Grace Congregational Church is located at 8 Court St., Rutland.
