Celebrated oceanographer Sylvia Earle, Ph. D., is the Assembly's keynote speaker. The two-day program brings together conservation leaders and scientists-as well as policy makers, and business people from across Florida to discuss strategies to protect our coasts, birds, and wildlife, and secure our quality of life.
Come and enjoy two days of Audubon fellowship. Connect with nature and birds on expert-led and self-guided field trips http://audubonoffloridanews.org/?page_id=2832. Celebrate Audubon chapter milestones, too: St. Petersburg Audubon turns 100 and Clearwater Audubon is 50 this year. Deepen your knowledge at exciting learning sessions. And share your stories of how climate change is affecting your life and the places you care about. See the full Assembly schedule http://audubonoffloridanews.org/?page_id=2744 .
