Spring weather just makes you want to stretch, like the Merlin in the photo. The promise of new growth and new life is exhilarating and worthy of expanding horizons. Spring is also a time to stretch yourself in other ways, to challenge yourself with new endeavors that expand your range of interests or broaden your mind.
Participating in chapter activities provides many opportunities to stretch your horizons. Bird ID classes in the field, owl prowls, field trips, and the Bird-A-Thon allow you to expand your view of Florida birds and wildlife habitats. Absorbing information about the natural world permits you to challenge those who promote environmental degradation as a “good thing.”
Stretching is invigorating, so stretch your legs birding, stretch your mind learning about our local environment, and stretch your commitment to St. Lucie Audubon.
