The Choctawhatchee Audubon Society’sm onthly Meeting will focus on the natural history and conservation of the Bahama Parrot.

This parrot exhibits a unique behavior in that it nests underground in limestone solution cavities. This also poses unique management challenges which other parrots do not face. The Bahamas National Trust has addressed this challenge as well as other conservation issues through its management. Join us to learn more about the Bahama Parrot, a charismatic and unique bird species.

The meeting will be held in room 130 of the student services building 400 at the Northwest Florida State College Niceville campus.

This PG-rated film is an animated action film featuring Flint Lockwood, the local scientist, who wants to invent something that will bring him fame and recognition as the town’s economy is struck by disaster and the food supply dries up. The entire town is relegated to living on sardines! Lockwood invents a machine which makes food fall from the sky! The townsfolk are thrilled to be inundated with pizza, steaks, spaghetti, ice cream and all manner of wonderful food.

The film will be shown free of charge on the big screen beginning at approximately sunset or 7:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to come downtown early to enjoy the beauty of Lake DeFuniak and partake of excellent street food fare provided by Neighbors Kitchen. There will be a drawing for special prizes and chances to win will be given with each food purchase.
