President – Ken Spilios Treasurer – Sue Albertson Secretary - Jan Bailey Directors – Rey Wells, Libby Cagle, Pat Bazany Ex-Officio – Fred Hileman
Our last field trip of the season was to Cedar Key on April 13th. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we saw 67 species. We are hoping to again hold in-person chapter meetings at the church in Lecanto sometime in the fall, and you should receive an email when those plans are formalized. Please check our website for any events that may be scheduled in the meantime: www.CitrusCountyAudubon.org.
Our Kings Bay poster was installed the week of March 22nd, and we invite you to take a look if you find yourself in Crystal River. We hope to do a similar poster for the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Also, the Board voted to donate $350 towards scholarships for the Marine Science Station’s Coastal Camp program this summer.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank Fred Hileman for shepherding us through the last several years as President and also to Ken Spilios for taking over the reins as our new President.
