Latest News: 

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. Click here for the details.

A Reminder - Our January 2017 field trips require advance planning. The 3 day trip to St. Mark’s National Wildlife Refuge  is still open, but you must make your own lodging arrangements. The Cracker Creek boat trip is limited and reservations are mandatory. Please check the details for each event under Field Trips if you are planning on attending.
