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.

Raymond Road Farm

We have already seen the diminished populations of the birds and wildlife at Ackerman Lake on the northern side of the Celery Fields due to the massive development occurring there.

SAS position: A high-density residential development does not belong here on Raymond Rd adjacent to the Celery Fields birding destination. It will negate and undermine all the millions of dollars and planning invested by Sarasota County and its Stormwater Division, not to mention tourism dollars.

Join us in opposing high-density development (171 residential units) next door to the Celery Fields!
