What we're about

Get outside and see what's there! Come inside and listen to one of our monthly speakers! Meet other local birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts on Florida's Space Coast (Brevard County area). This meetup is for all those who appreciate Florida's amazing biodiversity and are interested in its conservation. Our group 's primary season is October to May during which we host monthly meetings with informative speakers. During our season we also offer multiple field trips each month that offer bird watching, wildlife viewing, plant and butterfly spotting, and opportunities for photography--all age groups and skill levels welcome. . We'd like to encourage impromptu meetups for special sightings or bird counts. For more information visit our website at www.spacecoastaudubon.org. Our Chapter is part of the national Audubon organization and a portion of the funding for our programs comes from individual memberships to Audubon.
