For the health and safety of our members, friends and board we will NOT be offering any programs at Trinity Episcopal Parrish Hall or organized field trips until it is safe to gather again. As soon as Covid-19 is under control, SFAS programs and field trips will begin again.

Our membership year is September through August coinciding with our programming year. The SFAS Board of Directors has decided to extend the membership for 2019-2020 members for one year, making their renewal September 2021.

If you are not currently a member of Santa Fe Audubon and wish to join or if you would like to make a contribution to the ongoing conservation activities of the chapter, information is located here on our website under “more detail on SFAS” on the left side by our territory map.

We are in touch with members and some non-members with our monthly newsletter, The Kite. If you would like to get on the email list for our newsletter, please email me at santafeaudubonfl@aol.com.

Sweetwater Wetlands Sheetflow Project field trip
April 2015
Lightning and thunder did not deter 39 nature enthusiasts and birders from the Lake Santa Fe and Alachua Audubon Societies from exploring the Sweetwater Wetlands Park before it was opened to the public on May 2, 2015. The park is part of the Sweetwater Branch/Paynes Prairie Sheetflow Restoration Project and designed to remove nitrogen and phosphorus from water entering Paynes Prairie and to restore hydration of more than 1,300 acres of formerly impacted wetlands. Already one of the premier birding spots of north-central Florida, the park is also an outstanding habitat for other wildlife. The field trip started with a brief downpour but the rain subsided quickly and the group explored the park without getting wet. Almost 50 species of birds were observed during the 3-h trip including several migratory and rare species such as the bobolink, peregrine falcon, stilt sandpiper and Wilson's snipe. Other highlights included the sighting of a banded water snake.
