The Florida Scrub-Jay in Peril: Learn What YOU Can Do About It

  • Venice Audubon Center 4002 South Tamiami Trail South Venice, FL, 34231 United States (map)

The endearing Florida Scrub-Jay — Florida’s only endemic bird species — is in real danger of extinction. Numbers of these social, highly specialized birds have plummeted due to habitat destruction. Is it possible to turn this trend around? Join Florida Master Naturalist, Kate Borduas, as she explores how things got to be so dire, so fast, and what is being done to help the surviving Florida Scrub-Jay populations. Learn what YOU can do to help save one of the birds the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has named a “Species of the Century.”

When: The social period begins at 6 p.m. and the general meeting and program follow at 6:30 p.m.
(Please note: VAAS programs are held on the 2nd Tuesday in December and May only.)
Where: Venice Audubon Center at Annex Road behind the R. L. Anderson Administration Building, Venice, FL
