Welcome to Bancroft & District Chamber of Commerce
The first Discovery Tour is THIS Saturday May 25, hosted by the Bancroft Field Naturalist Club. Chimney Swifts are cigar shaped birds who roost or nest in chimneys and are now on the endangered species list as threatened. After a brief introduction and talk on Chimney Swifts, participants will drive to a “secret” location to watch hundreds of Chimney Swifts in action. Registration starts at 6:30pm at the Bancroft Railway Station, tour starts at 7:00pm. Participants will need their own transportation to reach tour venues, maps will be provided.

·Gather a list of projects you are already working on to add them to a new Action List.
·Brainstorm with community organizations and individuals on what Action Items to add to the new list.
·Discover what attendees believe are the two most pressing issues or opportunities the community should tackle in the year ahead.
