Apalachee Audubon Society is a bird organization. And to help the birds at Lake Elberta in Tallahassee, they’re enhancing the plant life there.

Native grasses and trees will provide shelter for birds.

 

FAMU BioBlitz: Invasives and Nature in Unexpected Places | American Spring Live | WSFU

We have one hour on FAMU’s campus to observe as much wildlife as we can using the iNaturalist app. The group is a mix of professional biologists and students studying GIS (Geographical Information Systems), which mixes maps and information- just like iNaturalist. The app gets them to stop and notice the diversity of life around them, even in an urban college campus.
