As a chapter of the National Audubon Society we seek to increase interest and involvement in our local and state environment, its history, wildlife, preservation and restoration.
Beginning with our November meeting on November 15, 2021 our meeting location is changing.
Our new meeting place is St Andrew Presbyterian Church located nearby at 1239 West Del Webb Blvd. in SSC
Our meeting day is the third Monday of the months of October thru April. The exception this year is December. It’s the second Monday because of the holiday season.
So our dates are: November 15, December13, January 17, February 21, March 21, and April 18.
This location is easy to navigate:
From Kings Point in a golf cart or car exit via the front gate and cross 674 And continue onto Valley Forge. Make a left onto Fordham to the Hospital sign where you will turn left on Haverford. Continue to W Del Webb and turn right. The church is on the right a short distance down W. Del Webb..
Coming from the west on 674 it is easier to go to the light where the turn is for KP but get in the left lane to turn onto Valley Forge and follow the directions above.
From the east go past KP and take a right on W Del Webb.
Our November monthly meeting will feature Julie Stocksdale presenting two case studies on Florida’s Endangered/Threatened birds:
Florida is home to many unique habitats, and thus we have a number of rare, threatened, and endangered species. Two of these species are the red-cockaded woodpecker and the Florida scrub jay. Julie will discuss the natural history of each of these birds, why they have become so rare, and what efforts are being made to save them. A field trip on December 1 to Oscar Scherer State Park will focus on Florida scrub jays and their habitat needs.
Note: We will follow current CDC guidelines and we ask for courtesy toward mask wearers.
