If the Tropical Audubon Society isn’t already in your radar, you might have passed by their headquarters near downtown South Miami, never even noticing an unassuming, rustic, wooden house on a large lot, set back from Sunset Drive east of Red Road.  If so, it’s time you became acquainted with TAS!

TAS volunteer and RPCVSF member Steve Rawlins (Korea ’71-72) will be our host and guide to see the property and learn about TAS.  Other TAS volunteers among our RPCV community may also be there.

Please registerfor the free tour and (optional) picnic lunch ($7) by Wednesday, April
