Established in the 1940s, the Tampa Audubon Society serves the greater Tampa Bay area and its suburbs, including Brandon, Odessa, Riverview and Seffner. We are an active chapter whose mission is to conserve and restore our ecosystems, focusing on birds, wildlife, and their habitats, through education, advocacy, and community involvement.
Save your spot now for our group tour to Chan Chich Lodge in Belize in May 2020! This will be a short, sweet trip, just 3 days, at a renowned birding and eco‐lodge with trained guides and wonderful accommodations known as one of the world’s best places to spot jaguars and a host of colorful toucans, parrots and hummingbirds. Activities include birding in the canopy birding in an elevated blind, a night ride for nocturnal species, birding atop the local escarpment for raptors, drives to nearby wetlands, and (if you choose) birding from horseback. There is also a guided walk through the Mayan plaza with an explanation of the site’s archaeology.
NOTE: Airfare to and from Belize not included. Accommodations payable directly to lodge. Trip may be extended upon request.
