The Quad Parcels Are Protected Forever!
On Oct. 6, Sarasota County, Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast, and Sarasota Audubon created a three-fold private-public partnership that permanently protects the Quad parcels under a Conservation Easement. The Conservation Foundation will hold the Conservation Easement and Sarasota Audubon will restore the parcels. Read Acting President Jeanne Dubi’s letter to members here.

Welcome to the Sarasota Audubon Society!
An extremely active chapter with numerous trips and projects to engage you: monthly meetings with fascinating speakers, day trips, national and international trips, road and park clean ups, and nature walks for kids and adults. Please visit us at the Sarasota Audubon Nature Center. Our signature conservation project is the Beach Nesting Bird Program in which volunteers monitor Snowy Plovers, Least Terns and Black Skimmers as they struggle to survive on our busy beaches. We also have a scholarship program for high schoolers who will be studying environmental sciences in college.
