eBird

If you want to know which species to look for in your area and when you are most likely to see them, visit eBird. You can see data down to the county level under the Explore a Region tab. There are bar charts that provide count numbers and when the birds are seen locally.

Introduction

As “Advocate for the preservation of the Earth’s diverse ecosystems”, this Society shall be engaged in such educational, scientific, investigative, literary, historical, philanthropic, and charitable pursuits as may be part of the stated purposes of the National Audubon Society (NAS) and Audubon of Florida (AOF).

Our goals:

To foster knowledge, appreciation, and enjoyment of nature; to encourage responsible environmental stewardship; and to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and other wildlife and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the Earth’s biological diversity.

We envision ourselves as an organization that is:

The recognized local authority on birds and their habitats
A credible voice promoting environmentally sound decisions on local conservation issues
The leader in education on birds and their habitats.
A local information resource on wildlife.
Identified as a provider of high quality programs and field trips
Dedicated to both environmental education and advocacy we:

Work to protect wildlife and conserve Florida’s outstanding natural resources;
Connect people and nature through hands-on experiential learning;
Build community through members and chapters.

We currently meet on the first Thursday of the month from October through May. This could be changing in the near future. Our meeting location is the Oxbow Eco-center in Port Saint Lucie, FL. Watch this blog for updates in federal, state, and local conservation news.
