 HRA Chapter Meeting

Summer Hiatus  is Over!

 
Learn Why the Indian River Lagoon Matters from Dr. Duane De Freese 

Providing food and shelter to approximately 4,000 species of plants, fish and animals, and billions of dollars of economic benefit annually to the five counties it borders including Volusia, the Indian River Lagoon (IRL) system is one of the most biologically diverse estuaries in North America. It is also endangered as recent news reports show.

Halifax River Audubon has chosen the IRL as a strategic priority. To kick off our new year, we invite you to come learn about the many ways the IRL matters and what we can do to help restore and preserve it from Duane De Freese, Ph.D., Executive Director of the IRL Council & Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program

Our next meeting will be September 17, 2018. Our venue will remain the same: Sica Hall, 1065 Daytona Ave, Daytona Beach, FL 32117. Doors open at 6:30. Meeting begins at 7:00 p.m......more info

 

Shearwaters and Northern Fulmars.....

The Seawatch at Tom Renick Park in Ormond Beach is going strong. Harry Robinson is compiling an impressive record of the birds that are seen from this beachside park, both from landside and over the ocean. These reports are available on our website. Harry welcomes company while observing. Bring your scope to follow along as the birds can move very fast. It's like a pelagic trip without the swells.

In addition to Ormond Beach, Harry has joined with Kim Ramos and Sam Krah on Tuesday afternoons at Dunlawton Bridge. Together they have compiled their observations into a concise spreadsheet that is available now on the website. They have been meeting at 4PM, but may "Fall Back" to 3PM with the time change.

As always, the complete series of reports for the Lake Apopka Restoration area and for Audubon Park are archived here on the website.
