Join us for our next program!

Monday, April 21 2014, 7:30pm - 9:00pm                 


Speakers: Sally Steinauer and Pete Johnson, Florida Native Plant Society


Come hear why native plants should be used in our landscape for the benefit of our birds and butterflies. You’ll see how one person converted their yard to native plantings, learn about plant choices, and learn which plants will attract more birds to your yard. Brochures to help with your native plant selections will be available.

 

Location: Swaim Memorial United Methodist Church, 1620 Naldo Ave, Jacksonville

 
Bird-a-Thon 2014 – Counting birds for a good cause! PDF Print E-mail


We want to put the FUN in FUNdraising. Join us for our annual Bird-A-Thon during the month of April. Download our pledge sheet here, collect pledges and start birding! Keep a list of all the bird species you see anywhere from April 1 to April 30. Ask your sponsors to pay you by the number of species on your list, for example, .50 cents per species seen, or request a fixed amount donation (our suggestion is a $25 minimum, but any amount is appreciated). Funds raised go to support our work in Northeast Florida. Prizes will be given at our May "Birds and Breakfast" on the 17th to those with the most species and most funds raised. Must be present to win. Mail your results by May 5 with your check to Duval Audubon Society, P.O. Box 16304, Jacksonville, FL 32245 or bring them to the May meeting. Have FUN and good birding! Any questions, contact Carolyn Antman, 904-737-1019.
