Shawnlei Breeding, the Eagle Watch Program Coordinator for the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, will be joining us todiscuss the exciting citizens science program. The Eagle Watch Progran seeks information about Bald Eagles, active nest locations and possible disturbances or threats to nest activities. Shawnlei will share with us the history of the program which started 25 years ago with 22 volunteers in Central Florida monitoring eagles nests. Through today the program has over 200 citizen science volunteers. The volunteers are reaching into more communities each year, and are continuing to heighten awareness of Bald Eagle activities throughout the year.
In addition to our guest speaker we will have several Eagle Watch Volunteers join us. They will be sharing stories and photos of their adventures while monitoring the nests. These volunteers plan to attend: Laurie Segal, Michelle Nardone, Catherine Hicks, Kathy Wilson, Stacey Kelly and Sherry Chester.
Please join us at Trout Lake Nature Center May 7, 2027 at 2:00 pm. 520 East County Road 44 Eustis, FL and bring along a snack to share.
Board Meeting to follow immediately after the program.
