Program October 15, 2015
by Shari Blisset-Clark
As Halloween approaches, bats are used as an icon of spookiness, but bats actually contribute to a healthy, balanced environment. Shari Blisset-Clark’s fascination with bats began more than 20 years ago when she partnered with Bat Conservation International as a bat house researcher. She has since built and erected many successful bat houses throughout Florida and is licensed to keep bats for education. Shari comes to us from Brevard County, where she serves on the boards of Bat Belfries, the Florida Bat Conservancy, the Florida Native Plant Society, and the Brevard Botanical Garden. She focuses on Florida native bats only.
For the October Orange Audubon Society program, Shari will debunk the common myths that give rise to unfounded fear of these flying mammals and attendees will have an opportunity to meet two of the most common species in Central Florida.
Join us for a fascinating program, suitable for children and all ages. For directions to Leu Gardens visit:http://www.leugardens.org/plan/directions.htm
Return to the Roost--Hay Ride
November 14, 2015
“Return to the Roost” a hay ride type field trip at Orlando Wetlands Park (OWP) is a wonderful way to see the far reaches of this beautiful place. Even more exciting is a ride at sunset, in which you can watch wading birds “return to the roost.” As it darkens, alligator eyes shine, and night sounds will fill your senses.
This event on Saturday, November 14th, 4:30–6:30 PM, is a fund-raiser for Orange Audubon Society. Cost is $30 per person with 20 persons maximum. OWP is located at 25155 Wheeler Rd, Christmas, FL 32709.

Orlando as Premier City
to visit in 2015
according to The New York Times
Orlando is the premier spot to visit in 2015 (The New York Times, 2015), but it is more than Disney with 83 parks in Orange County alone, and its natural wonders are endless. Something is always happening!
