Big Lagoon State Park affords us a variety of habitats for birding, from Upland Pine plantation through salt marsh and estuary waters.

We will assemble the group at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of the Escambia County Southwest Branch Library (12248 Gulf Beach Hwy, Pensacola, FL 32507) across from the park entrance.

There is a minimal per vehicle fee to enter the park, so we can carpool and split the price.

Mary Jones will lead our walk through the park.

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 are recommended for our outdoor walks.

For details, call Scott Rathkamp, 776-9736.
