Council of Chapters report is attached.

There will be no Volunteer Hours report for the Board meeting this month as it is not compiled until mid-month.

The Conservation Committee did not meet in April. We plan to hold our regular meeting on the third Tuesday in May at 6:30.  We proposed an additional Conservation Grant Award of $1900 to the project "Restoration of a functional pineland ecosystem in Northern Miami-Dade County", if funds are available.

If funds are available - we propose a motion to the BOD to approve this additional expenditure - a motion to approve a Conservation Grant Award in the amount of $1900 to Raul Moas for the project "Restoration of a functional pineland ecosystem in Northern Miami-Dade County"

The Finance Committee did not meet in the period between the April and May board meetings, so there is no report.
