Upcoming Events: 

  Summer is officially over on Labor Day but it'll take another 6 weeks or so for the temperatures to catch up on that. We're back from our summer hiatus and ready for another season of meetings, field trips and fun. Our next regular meeting will be held on Monday, September 19th. Dr. Paul Gray, Audubon Florida’s Lake Okeechobee Science Coordinator, will give us a presentation on the myriad difficulties effecting the state’s largest lake and some possible remedies for its troubled waters. 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.
