Eagle lovers and supporters: Here is an opportunity to support an effort by the American Eagle Foundation (AEF) to offer a specialty Bald Eagle license tag in Florida that will benefit eagle education, conservation and protection initiatives in our state. While AEF is located in Tennessee, they have been long-time funders of Audubon Florida’s EagleWatch Program and operate several eagle nest webcams here in Florida that give you an eagle’s eye view into the amazing process eagle parents go through to hatch and raise young. To purchase your presale eagle license plate tag voucher, go to https://myfloridaspecialtyplate.com/eaglevoucherorder.html. In order for the eagle tag to be approved, 3,000 vouchers must be sold. If the minimum presale requirement is met, your tag order will be processed. If they fall short of the necessary presale goal, your purchase will be refunded.
First Magnitude Brewery is giving their employees a well-earned day off on Oct. 3 2021 so we have cancelled the Birds & Brews walk for that day. See you next month!

The scammers are at it again. Periodically a scammer, pretending to be a Alachua County Audubon Society board member, sends emails to people, typically other board members, asking for assistance in purchasing gift cards for donations to various charities. This is definitely a scam! If you receive such an email please do not reply or otherwise do as they ask.
