Crosby Work Days: Duval Audubon is working to provide more opportunities for our members and the public to visit and help with projects at the Crosby Sanctuary in Orange Park, Fl. Regular work days/field trips are scheduled on the fourth Saturday of the month throughout the 2019/2020 season. Location: 427 Aquarius Concourse, Orange Park. For more information, check our calendar or call Pete Johnson, (904) 536-4806.

Shorebird Stewarding: Like birds? Like the beach? We have just the opportunity for you! The Timucuan Shorebird Partnership is looking for bird stewards to help our imperiled shorebirds nest safely! All you need are a few hours to spend at nesting sites and a desire to help the public share the beach responsibly with our feathered friends. In Duval, the primary location is Huguenot Memorial Park. Other areas are Little Talbot Island State Park, Amelia Island State Park, and Fort Clinch State Park.

Shorebird Monitoring: There are several volunteer shorebird monitoring programs in our area available through the Florida Shorebird Alliance - doing bird surveys, monitoring Least tern rooftop nests, bird stewards and beach-nesting bird monitoring. All are an important step for shorebird awareness and protection in our area! It is also a good opportunity for folks to learn more about shorebirds and contribute to our community and our citizen science effort.
