Although the Thanksgiving holiday has just passed, it sure feels like winter already! Our snowbird members will be here soon and it will be great to see them again. As the Christmas season approaches, I’m sure you all are busy and so is Audubon. Here are the upcoming events:
12/2 Wallace Brooks Park field trip 12/9 Pepper Creek bird walk 12/13 Members’ Annual Christmas Dinner 12/15 Ft. Island “evening” field trip (yay - no getting up at 0’dark:30) 1/13 January Pepper Creek bird walk 1/17 January Chapter meeting
For those involved with the Christmas Bird Count, relevant dates are: 12/6 orientation meeting 12/20 count day (keep fingers crossed for good weather!) 12/21 tally/wrap-up meeting/luncheon
Three Sisters Springs has invited us to man a booth at their “open house” held in conjunction with the Crystal River Manatee Festival on Jan. 13th & 14th. We are looking for volunteers for this event as well as volunteers to lead our field trips. If you are able to help out, please email us at President@CitrusCountyAudubon.org
The last printing of our 2024 calendar is done & in the process of being distributed to those who placed orders. Our binoculars order has arrived as well – just in time for Christmas! Please remember that membership renewals are due by the end of December ($20 single, $25 family). Additional donations are welcome. Thank you.
