Florida Native Plant

& Wildlife-Friendly Yard Tour Saturday April 11, 2015

Central Florida landscapes are deserts for wildlifewasting water on environmentally-unfriendly plants, using pesticides and fertilizers that leach into water bodies, Yet some homeowners have learned that native, wildlife-friendly plants draw wildlife to their yards, and conserve water.

 

Orange Audubon Society and the Florida Native Plant Society will host a Native Plant and Wildlife-Friendly Yard Tour on April 11, 2015 from  9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This collaborated tour will showcase some home yards that are wildlife-friendly and attractive.

Spring Birds Walks

at Mead Botanical Garden


Orange Audubon will be holding guided bird walks at Mead Botanical Garden in Winter Park to celebrate spring migration. The walks will be on Saturdays starting April 4th through April 25th. Walks begin at 8:00 a.m., last 2 to 3 hours and go at a casual pace. All are led by experienced birders and are open to the public and are FREE.


Mead Botanical Garden is located at the intersection of south Denning Drive and Garden Drive two blocks east of Orlando Ave (Hwy. 17-92). Mead has been a great place for migrating birds to stop for food and rest on their way back north after the winter.

 

The variety of habitats, wetlands, open water, and an upland area with oaks and tall pines, appeals to many bird species. Over 160 species have been documented in the past several years, including 23 species of warbler and 6 species of woodpecker.


A limited number of loaner binoculars are available. If you need a pair, please come a little early to sign them out and, if necessary, get a quick course on their proper use. No need to preregister, just show up and have fun. Hope we see you there!
