Audubon Eagle Program Jan. 7

Join Audubon Everglades on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 7 p.m. when Florida Audubon EagleWatch Project Manager Shawnlei Breeding will be the featured speaker at the group’s monthly lecture program at Origin Church (6073 Summit Blvd., Haverhill).

Breeding spent many years as an administrator before pursuing her dream of working with animals. She came to Audubon from Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where she was a bird keeper at the Avian Research Center. Her expertise and experience have led to many activities, including organizing wintering shorebird surveys, mapping sea turtle nest data, and maintaining strategic partnerships with local, regional and national organizations to leverage conservation effectiveness.

The Florida EagleWatch program is based at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland. For 27 years, dedicated volunteers have monitored bald eagle nests around the state as part of Audubon Florida’s community science EagleWatch program. EagleWatch volunteers monitor documented nests in Palm Beach County and play an important role in reporting new nests, documenting nest status and protecting nests from disturbances with the potential to cause nest failure. Come learn more about the program and how the data collected is helping Florida’s population of bald eagles.

Audubon Everglades monthly speaker programs are free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Learn more at
