The 2013 Audubon Academy is being held in the centrally located city of Mount Dora (elevation 144 ft) at the newly renovated historic Lakeside Inn (established 1883). Mount Dora, known for its variety of antique and specialty shops, is near some of the best birding destinations in Florida.
This year’s Academy is being held April 12–14 and the theme is “Connecting with Your Community”. Academy will offer numerous outdoor and indoor workshops and information sharing sessions to enhance the abilities of both current and future Audubon chapter leaders. Regardless of your chapter size or location, the fun activities—pizza party, chapter displays, poster sessions, citizen science training, chapter leader skills events, hospitality and more—can help enable chapters to expand and invigorate their outreach and conservation activities.
For more information, including the schedule, descriptions of the workshops and registration information go to or contact your chapter leaders. Registration can be done online by clicking here or by mail. Note that room reservations at the group rate must be made by March 1 and Academy registrations should be done by March 31.
Do not miss this once a year opportunity to network at this “for the chapters, by the chapters”-event, dedicated to protecting and conserving Florida’s natural resources.
