Audubon Academy goes to the Florida Scrub.

The ancient islands along the spine of Florida form an ecosystem unique in the world.  Audubon Academy 2009 will be held March 27-29, 2009, near Haines City at the FFA Leadership Training Center located in this fascinating and little-known part of Florida. Whether your chapter is large and urban or small and rural, conservation projects are the powerhouse in an effective chapter.  From urban back yards to large ecosystems, habitats for birds and other wildlife can be protected through effective conservation actions by Audubon chapters. The Academy kicks off on Friday with lakeside activities, an excellent dinner and program.  Saturday’s events begin with ecology field trips, then a day of interactive workshops, networking and sharing opportunities, good meals, and an exciting evening program.  Workshops follow Sunday morning ecology field trips, and we wrap up at noon.  More information, including the schedule, descriptions of the workshops and the registration form can be found over there on the right under the heading "Pages".  (Photo by Nancy Deyrup)
