***Important Changes to the Field Trip Schedule for April***
There is nothing more consistent than change and the field trip schedule bears this out. Please check the website for the most up to date information. If you are not already on our mailing list for field trips, contact us and ask to be added for reminders and change notifications.
A quick note - the field trip on the Blue Heron along the St Johns River is almost full. There is still time to get on the boat, but this trip is very popular and those seats may fill quickly. Contact Celine Sullivan ASAP if you are interested.
Harry Robinson has conducted a Sea Watch at Tom Renick County Park in Ormond Beach for a year, chronicling the movement of birds along our coast. He is continuing his observations, looking for trends in this activity. He welcomes anyone who wants to join him on watch mornings. All of the 2016 information is available on our website along with his extensive work at the Lake Apopka Restoration Area and Audubon Park. Click here for the details.
March Membership Meeting
Monday, March 20, 2017 Don Picard, president of Southeast Volusia Audubon, will be our guest speaker. Topic - The Galapagos Islands. So much has been written about these islands, but Don succinctly sums up the impact of this archipelago: “In the grand scheme of things, the Galapagos Islands are but a speck in the Pacific ocean, but their effect on our understanding the world is immense.”
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at Sica Hall, 1065 Daytona Avenue, Holly Hill. The presentation begins at 7:00 p.m. A brief business meeting follows.
