What we're about
Welcome to the Meetup group for Seminole Audubon Society! If you are interested in furthering your knowledge of birds, meeting other birders, and helping to conserve habitat for birds and other wildlife – then you are in the right spot.
The 2022-2023 season is September through April. Program Meetings will be held the 2nd Sunday of the month during the season except for October and April. In October, we will be participating in The Big Sit! in place of the meeting. In April, the meeting will take place on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Meetings will be held in the auditorium at UF IFAS Extension Seminole County, 250 West County Home Road, Sanford. Each meeting will have a guest speaker. Monthly field trips to local birding hotspots will be held September through April.

The Florida Scrub-Jay is the symbol of the Seminole Audubon Society. It is the only bird species that lives exclusively in Florida. It can be found in low-growing oak scrub and scrubby flatwoods. The numbers of Florida Scrub-Jay are small due to development and habitat fragmentation, it is on the federal endangered species list.
