Audubon Assembly 2019

WhitePelicans 201602 CBW 7DC 7104Audubon Florida's annual Audubon Assembly conference is coming up this month in Gainesville! The Assembly is Florida's premier conservation gathering, where grassroots leaders from around the state connect with Audubon’s professional staff and partners to grow their knowledge and skills to protect Florida’s precious natural resources.

This year's theme is "Water and Land For Florida's Future: Science-Based Strategies for Clean Water and Healthy Watersheds," and will feature a panel of leaders, experts, and decision-makers from state agencies and the legislature, who will discuss current challenges like nutrient pollution from urban and agricultural landscapes, wastewater and septic tanks, wastewater sludge (biosolids), aging infrastructure, wetland loss, and climate change. Listen, learn, and engage with them as they identify both our biggest obstacles but also our biggest opportunities. Together we will discuss programs that offer short and long-term solutions to improve the quality and quantity of Florida’s water resources.

The Assembly also features expert-led field trips at some of Gainesville's most exciting birding hotspots, and of course you will find lots of networking opportunities with Audubon chapter leaders and members around the state.

Please join us at this year's event!

When: October 25-26, 2019

Where: Hilton University of Florida Conference Center Gainesville, 1714 SW 34th St., Gainesville, FL 32607
