Our first program in September features our traditional covered dish dinner and presentations on the summer travels of chapter members.  Bring your favorite dish to enjoy with other bird-minded folks and hear about the summer activities of friends and neighbors as well as plans for the upcoming year.

If you have 3-5 slides of your summer adventures with birds, please bring them along in a PowerPoint presentation and we’ll let you take the stage to share the memories with other chapter members.

Apalachee Audubon’s Education Committee Co-Chairs Carol Franchi and Pat Press spent a week at Audubon’s Hog Island Education Camp in Maine this past summer and will share their experience with colorful slides and information on some of the stellar education materials being developed by Audubon.

Past-President Kathleen Carr and photo whiz Nick Baldwin also visited Hog Island this summer and have brought back some beautiful shots of puffins, gannets, and other cool-water species that stand to lose greatly as global warming progresses.
