BIRD WALK- Gulf Island

April 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Gulf Islands Nat’l Seashore – Fort Pickens/Battery Worth – Fort Pickens Rd, Pensacola Beach.  We will meet in the large parking lot on the north side of Ft Pickens Rd just before the park property begins.  There is a fee to enter the park so we will try to car pool with the ‘park pass holders’.  We are well into the spring migration so this should be an exciting with many different species ‘passing thru’ on their way north.  Powers McLeod will lead our bird walk.

These short bird walks are designed to introduce “future birders” into the world of “Bird Watching.”  If you have ever been curious about this activity or just enjoy the birds in your backyard, come join us to learn about our area birds.  Families with children are welcome.  If you have binoculars bring them.  If not, we will have a few ‘loaners’ available.  Bug spray, long pants and bottled water is recommended for our outdoor walks.  For details, call Scott Rathkamp, 776-9736.

New Requirement—All participants in published events and excursions must sign a Release and Indemnification Form which is valid through 2019.  Leaders will have forms for those who have not yet signed one.  The form is online: fmwaudubon.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Release_Indemnification.pdf
