UPDATE | Field Trip -Ft. Pickens

October 14 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Notice re the Saturday, October 14 field trip to Ft. Pickens:

The Ft. Pickens Road is closed due to storm damage.

The field trip will meet as planned, bird the immediate area including the Gulf and bayside beaches, then go to Naval Live Oaks in Gulf Breeze for coastal woodland trail birding.

The trip will be led by Daniel Stangeland. Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the large parking lot across from West Beach at the entrance to Ft. Pickens.

This is just west of the pink Palm Beach Club Condo at 1390 Ft. Pickens Road. We will finish before lunch.

As always be prepared by bringing water, snack if needed, sunhat, insect repellant.

Just in case the Ft. Pickens road opens up before Saturday (this is not expected), have your park pass with you.

This is just west of the pink Palm Beach Club Condos at 1390 Ft. Pickens Road, Pensacola Beach. Daniel Stangeland will lead this trip to one of the prime migrant birding sites on the northern Gulf Coast. His enthusiasm is contagious!

Bring water, insect repellant, sun hat, picnic lunch or snacks (optional).

We will finish by noon. Bring your National Parks pass if you have one, otherwise there is an entrance fee per car of $15.

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.
