Halifax River Audubon

Founded in 1923

Our logo celebrates the year that our organization was founded. Reaching our centennial is an important milestone and we will be celebrating in a big way. On April 20, 2023 we will gather for a special event at the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art in Daytona Beach. A reception, a great keynote speaker, special surprises will be the elements of a great evening. Please plan to join us. Seating is limited, so sign up early.

Announcing An Exciting Contest 

Scoring A Win for You and Birds

Garden Flyer

This month, we break new ground--literally! On February 1st, we are launching the Plant Real Florida for Birds, Butterflies & You contest.

Deadline for entries: March 31, 2023

Winning homeowners in Volusia County will receive $500.00 to purchase Florida Native Plants for their yards. Halifax River Audubon and West Volusia Audubon have teamed up for this groundbreaking (pun intended) contest to help local homeowners help birds and pollinators by creating valuable habitat in their own yards.
