Space Coast Audubon Society

Serving Brevard County, Florida, and Florida's Space Coastoin

Join Space Coast Audubon Society for our April 17th Meeting:
"The Importance of Prescribed Fire to the
Ecology of Florida and to Public Safety"

Please join Space Coast Audubon Society on April 17, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. when Tim Kuzusko will present a talk about the importance of prescribed fire to the ecology of Florida and to public safety.

Tim Kozusko is a native of Brevard County. He has a master’s degree in biology from UCF and is a doctoral candidate at FIT. He works at Kennedy Space Center in NASA's Ecological Program and has more than ten years experience in application of prescribed fire with Audubon of Florida, The Florida Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Tim’s presentation will feature adaptations of plants and animals to fire, and how those adaptations tell us most of Florida's habitats require frequent, small, low-intensity fire. He will also discuss how development has upset the natural fire cycle, and coming challenges to prescribed fire from climate change.

We look forward to another great turnout.

Note: Unless otherwise noted, all general meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. in Calvin Hall at the Rockledge Presbyterian Church, 921 Rockledge Drive (on the corner of Orange Ave) Rockledge, FL.
