Please be aware that AWE has you, our members, best interest in mind to keep you healthy and safe from the Coronavirus. With the recent guidelines that Governor DeSantis has implemented we are canceling all events through April 30. In addition according to CDC guidelines, they are recommending no gatherings of more than 10 people. People need to stay a distance of 6-10 feet away from each other, and people who may be particularly vulnerable (and the people around them) should take extra care.
If you have any questions on our upcoming Field Trips or Talks please email email@example.com. Please stay safe.
Our remaining Talks on Marco and Naples are cancelled. We are working on a way to be able to bring them to you virtually, on facebook live or on Zoom. We will keep you posted once we have something in place.
