Water, Land and Birds-Conserving all that Makes Florida Special - Eric Draper

Orange Audubon Society is proud to host Eric Draper, Executive Director of Audubon Florida, as speaker for our September 18 meeting, our first program of the[masked] season .

Eric will illustrate some of Florida’s diverse ecological treasures, tell us of threats, and will share the tools supported by Audubon Florida to preserve “all that Makes Florida Special."

Among these tools is passage of Amendment One to provide a stable, dedicated funding source for the acquisition of conservation and recreation lands in Florida.

Eric is recognized as a leading advocate for Everglades restoration, water resource protection and land conservation. He leads a staff of 58 people statewide, raises a $5 million budget and is our chief lobbyist before the Florida Legislature and executive agencies. A Florida native, he has worked in conservation for his entire career.

Join us September 18 to welcome Eric and for an inspiring and thought-provoking program. Orange Audubon Society programs are free and no reservations are necessary. 

Programs are held in the Camellia Room of Leu Gardens,1920 N. Forest Avenue, Orlando (for directions call[masked]).
