The BBC Associations Chapters and Affiliates
The Brooks Bird Club formed in 1932 in Wheeling WV. In 1944 members from the Charleston WV area formed the BBC Handlan Chapter, at that point Wheeling became known as the Headquarters Chapter of the BBC. Then in 1978 the Bibbee Nature Club located in southeastern WV and the Mountwood Bird Club located in the Parkersburg WV area became the first independent bird clubs to become BBC affiliates. In 2008 the Pocahontas Nature Club, located in Pocahontas County WV, became an affiliate of the BBC.
The Headquarters Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club is were it all began in 1932.
Located in Wheeling West Virginia, we enjoy birding around the Tri-State area.
