The Sun City Center Audubon Club will meet Saturday, Feb. 7, in the Florida Room. Arrive at 9:30 a.m. for delicious refreshments; the business meeting starts at 10.
The native Florida scrub jay will be the star of a program presented by Brook Elias, a naturalist at Shamrock Park and Nature Center. He will discuss the life cycle, habitat, food preferences, predators, and future outlook of the scrub jay. The program will be followed up with a field trip on Tuesday, Feb. 10, to Venice Rookery and Shamrock Park to view the birds. There is a $5 per person fee for a guided tour of Shamrock Park, but no cost for the Rookery.
