Linda Vanderveen is a longtime member of Hernando Audubon.  She has served on the organization's Board of Directors for many years, including several terms as president. She volunteers at the Chinsegut Conservation Center, where she teaches Beginning Birding. She leads field trips, coordinates the Brooksville Christmas Bird Count - and, equally important, she maintains a bird-friendly yard.

During the 15 years that Debbie McKevitt and her husband, Jerry, have lived on their 10-acre property northeast of Brooksville, their goal has been to improve habitat and increase biodiversity for birds, butterflies and other pollinators, and other wildlife.  They have created many gardens and landscaped areas which include a wide variety of native flowering plants, grasses, shrubs, and trees, as well as aquatic plants around their 1 1/2-acre pond.
