Trekking on Thursdays

This event has expired and is here for your information.

December 19, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Trekking on Thursdays finds weekly groups of eager birders assembling at 8:30 a.m. or earlier to glimpse the Park’s feathered visitors. Led by birding enthusiast Gail King or naturalist Dee Bolton, identifications of bird species and their calls can sometimes be quite easy or offer a challenge, leaving one to page through a birding book. Birders often bring a notebook to record their sightings or add to their Lifelist.

The Park surroundings are old Florida at its finest and the treks along the trails are easy-going and not difficult. Some trails are paved, if one has ability issues. Bring a pair of binoculars (extra binoculars are available), some closed-toed shoes and a bit of patience, as our birds can be elusive.

Entrance to the Park is a $3 fee, payable at the front gate. Cash only, please.For further information, call 352-726-0315.

The weekly bird walks begin Thursday, October 10, 2019 and runs through April 30, 2020.
