  • Summer Break

    Duval Audubon Society is on break for the summer! Our chapter takes a break from our regular activities during the months of June, July, and August, but your chapter leaders will still be working hard over the summer to plan exciting field trips, fascinating informational presentations, and much more for the fall season starting in September.

    Royal Tern family at Huguenot watermark Lisa Patria 20200611 DSCN2699We’ll also be working with our partners at the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens and St. Johns Regional Audubon Society to recruit and train volunteers for the Lights Out Northeast Florida initiative fall migration season beginning on September 15th. If you would like to volunteer, please complete our application and we will get back with you soon.

    One activity that will be going full swing over the summer months is the Timucuan Shorebird Partnership’s shorebird stewarding program at beachfront parks in Duval and Nassau counties. Jacksonville’s Huguenot Memorial Park has the only nesting colony of Laughing Gulls and Royal Terns on Florida's Atlantic Coast, and several other species of imperiled shorebirds have also been found to nest there as well. There is a strong need for stewards to help the public share the beach responsibly with our feathered friends and allow these birds to nest safely. Shorebird nesting season in our area generally runs from May until the beginning of August, so if you have a few hours to spare over the summer or have questions about shorebird stewarding, please get in touch with our conservation director for Duval County Elizabeth Filippelli at This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Wishing you all the best for a fun and happy summer – we’ll see you in the fall!
