Award-winning Environmental Journalist to be speaker at September Meeting
Dinah Voyles Pulver, data editor and environment writer for the Daytona Beach News Journal, will be the featured speaker at our next monthly meeting. Her talk will be about Special Places and Hot Topics in Volusia and Flagler Counties. We'll learn about beautiful places to explore in our area, what is left to protect and other key environmental issues in our two counties.

She is a three-time recipient of the Waldo Proffitt Award for Excellence in Environmental Journalism and has received a Gold Medal for Public Service from the Florida Society of News Editors and a national award of merit from the Grantham Prize for Excellence in Reporting on the Environment. When not roaming the wilds for work, the sixth-generation Floridian is an avid birder and enjoys kayaking, genealogy, cooking and playing with her four grandchildren. The public is welcome to attend the meeting September 18th at Sica Hall, 1065 Daytona Ave, Daytona Beach, FL 32117. Doors open at 6:30. Meeting begins at 7:00 p.m.
