The Fall calendar of activities is available. We have included field trips, meetings, casual walks and more in a single document for your scheduling convenience. More details for each of the activities will be available on this website in our Calendar and on our MeetUp page in advance of each event. As always, check back often for changes and adjustments to the calendar.
You will note that for the Fall Chapter Meetings we will continue in the virtual format. This will remain in effect for the near term until the pandemic threat subsides.

The Great Backyard Bird Count 2021 - We partnered with the Ormond Beach Environmental Discovery Center (OBEDC) and conducted a fun event with games and prizes and guided walks and opportunities to get up close to birds in Central Park. This year presented challenges and the park event was canceled...but we found ways to participate and get the community involved. Check the results and videos.
Pájaros Sin Fronteras (Borderless Birds) - Megan Martin, Carlos Correa Encarnacion and Jake Dudley have created a documentary that will compares and contrasts birds and the birding community in Central Florida and Puerto Rico. Both areas present challenges to avian survival from natural disasters to rampant development. Yet, birding survives and thrives, creating an economic boost that can be felt in both areas. Follow their journey.
