firstname.lastname@example.org has been a difficult year for everyone – and that includes Citrus County Audubon. Our last chapter meeting was in February. We had to cancel our April picnic at Ft. Cooper and just recently, the decision was made to cancel our Christmas Bird Count. We miss seeing our friends & fellow birders.
CCAS has continued on, though. We have arranged field trips, but participation has been understandably low. We purchased a ZOOM program to enable Board of Directors meetings as well as member meetings. The January 20th Zoom presentation will be on bluebirds. In conjunction with this program, a Stewardship Award plaque will be given to one of our members in recognition of his work with bluebirds. If you have not already downloaded the free ZOOM meeting app, please do, so that you can join in. If you need help, email us at President@CitrusCountyAudubon.org
We are working on creating a 66” x 42” poster at Kings Bay Park. We continue to maintain & monitor an 18-box birding trail at Three Sisters Springs. Birds still need rescuing and in sponsorship of H.O.P.E. Wildlife Rehabilitation, CCAS has made a $500 Christmas donation. This is in addition to $700 previously given this year. We have also made donations to the Marine Science Station & Friends of Crystal River Preserve
We are hoping that you will help us do even more. Since we are unable to have in-person chapter meetings, there is no revenue from our raffles, etc. Please consider making a donation to Citrus County Audubon. We are a 501(C)(3) organization and your contribution is tax-deductible. You can mail a check (P.O.Box 527 – Lecanto, FL 34460) or send a secure donation through PayPal, accessed on our website: www.CitrusCountyAudubon.org
Also, it is that time of year to renew your membership: only $20 for a single or $25 for a family membership, payable by check or through PayPal. If you are joining for the 1st time or wish to change your information, our membership application can be found on our website under “About CCAS”. Please check out our Blog & other resources on the website. We appreciate any support you can give us at this time, and look forward to getting together soon. Thank you.
