To all Peace River Audubon Society members, family and friends, because of the Covid 19 pandemic, we are switching our usual onsite speaker presentations over to a virtual presentation for health reasons. We are very fortunate in being able to partner with Venice Audubon to share resources for the upcoming year. Jack Foard, VAS President, has put together a list of speakers via ZOOM or through a webinar presentation. Most of these you will have to sign up for prior to the presentation. The webinars will be on Tuesday evenings, so set that time aside for some exciting presentations.
Check our Calendar of Events for a full list of meetings and events.
