FIELD TRIP- Blakeley St. Park

November 9 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm

This beautiful moss-draped park on the Tensaw River north of Spanish Fort, AL was an early settlement, the town of Blakeley. (https://www.blakeleypark.com/About-Us)

The address is 34745 AL-225, Spanish Fort, AL 36527.

We will enjoy birding the trails and riverside walk which offer history and nature, and always beauty. Plan to bring a picnic lunch.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the Walmart parking lot at 9301 Pine Forest Rd, south of the corner of Nine Mile and Pine Forest Roads. Or, meet at the Park entrance at around 8:45 a.m.

There is a $4 admission per person at the park. We will return to Pensacola in early afternoon.

Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are appreciated.  All experience levels are welcome.  Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope. Sun­screen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks or lunch are recommended on all trips.

Please refrain from wearing scented cologne, perfumes or after­shave on field trips.  It distracts from the experience in nature, and some participants are highly sensitive to it.  Carpooling is encouraged.
