Choctawhatchee Audubon Society September activities
September 5: Thursday Evening Program. Birds and Hurricanes by Caroline Stahala, Ph.D.
Florida residents have experienced hurricanes along the coastline and felt the aftermath of passing storms. How do birds deal with these powerful storms? New technology is providing us some interesting insights into interactions between storms and birds. Come find out what the actual impacts to birds are from hurricanes. The presentation will be held in room 308/309 of the Student Services Building 400 at the Northwest Florida State College Niceville campus. Socializing begins at 6:30 PM and the program at 7:00 PM. Admission is free and open to the public. Contact Dave Clausen at (907) 321-3701 for more information. Please visit their website at choctawhatcheeaudubon.org.
