us for a joint program with Sierra Club at Vino's Pizza & Grill, 1430 San
Marco Blvd., Jacksonville.
Speaker Cameron Jaggard of The Pew Charitable Trusts
will update us on the Florida Forage Fish Campaign. The Florida Forage Fish
Campaign works to advance conservation measures for the forage fish species
that coastal birds and other wildlife depend on for food. We'll learn about the importance of forage
fish and what should be done to protect this valuable resource.
Food may be
purchased before the program. The program begins at 7pm.
Volunteers are needed now to help protect our nesting shorebirds and educate the public to recreate
cautiously at Huguenot Memorial Park. Two to four hour shifts are available. The
park is open from 8am-8pm daily. To sign up for a shift, contact Shelley
Beville, Parks Naturalist at (904) 251-3229,
