Shorebird at Palm Island Resort Birders are invited to migrate to Palm Island Resort June 1 - 2, 2012, for the Audubon Florida Weekend Getaway. One of the reasons Audubon Florida selected the resort as the location for their event is because of Palm Island's commitment to preservation. Travelers attending the Audubon Getaway Weekend will be treated to a meet-and-greet dessert reception Friday followed by a guided bird and beach walk on Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon, bird identification and photography workshops are scheduled with a Saturday evening BBQ ending the day. During dinner, hear how Audubon is protecting Florida's Special Places. Sunday morning, attendees are invited to explore and enjoy the serenity of the island. For more on the weekend, visit the Spring 2012 issue of Audubon Florida or contact Palm Island Resort at 1-800-824-5124 or 941-697-4800.
