Audubon Assembly Set for Oct 20th & 21st - Early Bird Registration Recommended
The Audubon Assembly is taking place in St. Johns County this year at the World Golf Village on October 20-21. Join us for Florida’s premier conservation gathering, where grassroots leaders from around the state join Audubon’s professional staff and partners to grow their knowledge and skills to protect Florida’s precious natural resources. We encourage all members to take advantage of this and consider attending. Early registration is recommenced for early bird rates. http://fl.audubon.org/about-us/audubon-assembly for more information.
Conservation Leadership Initiative (CLI). In addition to the regular Friday morning field trips planned for the Audubon Assembly, 25 carefully selected University and College students will be sponsored to attend the 5th annual CLI. If your chapter is interested in engaging with the next generation of conservation leaders you will want to make sure that you sign up to be a co-mentor. Specially crafted to encourage interaction, seasoned leaders (such as yourselves) will learn what makes young folks tick and these your environmentalists will meet Audubon and learn about the opportunities for conservation careers. You (or someone from your chapter) will be paired up with a student and participate in a field trip or walking workshop on Friday morning. The students will then join us for the balance of the Assembly. Students from previous CLI sessions have joined Chapter Boards, started college Audubon chapters and engaged in their own conservation projects. Please consider being a co-mentor and/or share this information with your members.
Read the interview with our own Jean Rolke in the July edition of The FLORIDA NEWSLINE about the struggles facing nesting shorebirds in the ever changing Florida landscape. Also included are tips for avoiding the threats that endanger the birds especially at nesting times.
The future of our planet is in the hands of our youth. So good to see Flager College getting students interested in shore birds. Read more at this link about the good learning opportunity for Flagler students.
