Welcome to a New Year
Welcome to the new blog for the St. Johns Audubon Society located in St. Johns County, Florida. We are a large and sprawling county, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the St. Johns River, pictured in the photo above, on the west. We include wonderful shore birding areas such as Guana River and Fort Matanzas, and beautiful parks along the river like Alpine Groves. Our county seat is historic St. Augustine, home of the first permanent European settlement in the US. We also have beautiful undeveloped countryside and farming communities.
This rich variety of habitat gives us a wonderfully varied bird population as well, yet the changing demographics lead to many conservation challenges. With this blog we hope to keep you up to date with all the events and activities that we are involved with, and we hope you may join us in our journey and get involved too! We're happy to have you with us.
