Lecture Series

Join us at the River Center for our monthly lecture series!

Our May speaker is Teri Jabour, president of the North American Butterfly Association Atala Chapter

Bird migration is a wonder of nature! Florida is part of the Atlantic Flyway, which means that twice a year, for several weeks, millions of birds fly over and many stop over to visit in South Florida. Palm Beach County has winter residents, like Palm Warblers, and stopovers like Black-throated Blue Warblers, roosting, resting and feeding along their way. The whys and hows of bird migration are still not fully understood, but seeing birds migrating from far-away places (and near) in the fall and spring is one of the perks of living in South Florida. This presentation discusses bird migration between North America and tropical regions and the birds you might see, from plovers and terns on the shore to songbirds (warblers and hummingbirds) in your back yard and raptors in the sky!

Teri Jabour worked several years at The Nature Conservancy’s Blowing Rocks Preserve on Jupiter Island where she had direct experience with restoration activities and wildlife monitoring. Being an instructor for the Florida Master Naturalist Program while working as a program coordinator at the City of West Palm Beach’s Grassy Waters Preserve was one of her favorite professional experiences. Teri has been a Master Gardener volunteer with UF/IFAS Palm Beach County Extension Service for 26 years and has been a long-time member of the Florida Native Plant Society. She is a past president of the Board of Directors for the Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Friends of John D. MacArthur Beach State Park. Teri is president of the North American Butterfly Association (NABA)-Atala Chapter, which she has been active with since its inception in 1995.
