BIRDWALK- GINS/Fort Pickens/Langdon
March 16 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Gulf Islands Nat’l Seashore – Fort Pickens / Langdon – 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 should see a good cross section of birds, from winter residents to early migrants, and gulls, terns and ospreys. Larry Goodman 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 are recommended for our outdoor walks.
New Requirement—If the shutdown is still in effect on the 19th, we will hold the bird walk at Shoreline Park in Gulf Breeze, 9AM to 11AM. From Rte 98 in Gulf Breeze turn S on Daniel St or SW on Shoreline Dr. Proceed 0.75 miles on Shoreline Dr to the park entrance on left.” All participants in published events and excursions must sign a Release and Indemnification Form which is valid through 2019.
