Audubon Assembly to Focus on Water Resources
This year’s Audubon Assembly focuses on Florida's incredible natural water resources. Learn how Audubon is using cutting-edge science and policy to preserve and protect our state's most precious resource.
Without experiencing the deep beauty and inspirational qualities of nature, one has difficulty committing the energy needed to protect the landscapes that make Florida so unique and special.
The 2012 Audubon Assembly is designed to inspire. Our signature conservation event brings together representatives of Audubon’s 35,000 members and 44 chapters with conservation leaders, scientists, educators and policy makers. Through nature-inspired walking workshops, inspiring speakers and thought-provoking learning sessions, Audubon plans to join together people of all ages and backgrounds in our common interest of protecting Florida's remarkable water resources.
Sarasota is the site, and as a pioneer in sustainability and water conservation, "Conserve Water to Sustain Life" is an appropriate theme.
Assembly officially begins Friday morning, October 26, and runs until 2 pm on Saturday, October 27 - but we hope to see you on Thursday evening for some networking and a a special free showing of the movie Last Call at the Oasis. This will also be a time to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Arriving early will also allow you to participate in your choice of field trips on Friday morning.
Date: Oct. 25-27, 2012 (Thursday - Saturday)
Location: Hyatt Regency Sarasota on Sarasota Bay
Keynote Speaker: Cynthia Barnett, Author of Mirage: Florida and the Vanishing Water of the Eastern U.S. and Blue Revolution: Unmaking America's Water Crisis
