How fitting that a talk about limpkins, a Florida endemic with a powerful conservation story to tell, ended a fantastic year of Audubon activities. We had high expectations as we went into this past year and, with Kathleen's leadership, the chapter was able to meet these and then some. I can't wait to see what we're able to do in the coming year. I hope you'll join us and get involved with making our community better for wildlife and people alike.
