Let's Go to Trinidad in 2017!
In celebration of Asa Wright Nature Centre's 50th anniversary, they are offering to donate $100 to our chapter when anyone books a trip to Asa Wright Nature Centre in 2017 through Caligo Ventures. They offer guided group tours, independent birding ventures or relaxing lodge stays. They are having special anniversary tours featuring 'birding celebrities' throughout the year. You can go during one of those weeks or anytime during the year. Just remember to mention you would like the donation to go to Duval Audubon Society. For more information on booking your trip, go to caligo.com
Asa Wright Nature Centre has a rich history with Audubon. In 1967, visionary Audubon members rallied behind three influential people who had a dream. Renowned wildlife artist Don Eckelberry, prominent ornithologist and conservationist Erma Fisk and Russell Mason of Florida Audubon Society joined forces to make their dream become reality. Donors around the country helped them purchase the Spring Hill estate in the rainforest and the famous Oilbird cave thus creating the first non-profit, conservation focused trust and eco-lodge in the Carribean.
