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.

Santa Fe Audubon Society concern for conserving and protecting the natural environment is expressed through involvement in regional water issues. Many fresh water lakes, rivers and springs in north Florida are in low level or low flow conditions because of excessive aquifer pumping combined with rainfall deficits. The lowered aquifer pressures resulting from this excessive pumping are also allowing salt water intrusion to develop on wells and springs near coastlines. To protect these natural systems from such deleterious anthropogenic impacts, we support and encourage water conservation and development of alternate water supplies.

Santa Fe Audubon Society Directors participate as Steering Team members on the North Florida and Southeast Georgia Regional Groundwater Model Development Steering Team assisting the St Johns River Water Management District, Suwannee River Water Management District and Florida Department of Environmental Protection in the development of a science based tool to assist regional water planning.

Santa Fe Audubon Society Directors participate as stakeholders in Clay-Putnam Minimum Flows and Levels Protection/Recovery Strategy Technical Work Group developing recovery strategies for Lake Geneva and Brooklyn Lake in Clay County and for Cowpen Lake in Putnam County, along with protection strategies for Lake Grandin in Putnam County.

Santa Fe Audubon Society maintains communication or participation with North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnership, North Florida Regional Aquifer Replenishment Initiative, FLOW, LAWA, and other local and regional efforts, as well as meeting with regional water users to encourage water conservation.
