Florida’s Nature Coast is filled with a wide variety of birds from Skimmers to Scrub Jays. Join us to learn more about the birds around us and what they need to thrive.

Dr. Ken Meyer, the executive director and co-founder of Avian Research and Conservation Institute in Gainesville, Florida, will be discussing the conservation needs and importance of native plants to the birds around us. In the course of conducting over 40 years of field research and producing management and conservation plans, Meyer and his team have studied the behavior and ecology of 16 species of birds of conservation concern in North, Central, and South America. In 2002, and again in 2014, Ken received a Partners in Flight National Research Award for studying the conservation biology of species at risk; and in 2005, a National Wildlife Stewardship Award from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative for cooperative studies of Swallow-tailed Kites.

We will also hear from Ms. Marcie Clutter a longtime activity leader of the Florida Trail Association and Board member of the Citrus County Native Plant Society will talk some more about native plants and their importance to the ecological systems of Birds. Then stay to learn from Max Schulman and Tom Craig about the treasure of birds that can be found on the trails here in Citrus County. We will also get to hear about our local Citrus County Audubon Society.
