FIELD TRIP- Gulf St. Park

March 9 @ 7:30 am

Gulf State Park and Stonehenge anyone? Well, almost! Following birding at Gulf State Park, Alabama, we will visit a replica of Stonehenge called “Bamahenge” near Elberta, Alabama.  Birding on the grounds there may hold some prehistoric surprises as well. . . name your favorite dinosaur – Stegosaurus?  Tyrannosaurus? or is it Triceratops?  This trip might really be quite a trip, winter residents included, and who knows?  Perhaps even a few very early Purple Martins or Parulas!  Lunch at a restaurant in Foley after the State Park portion of the trip.  Meet at the Greer’s Cash Saver grocery at 4051 Barrancas, just east of Navy Blvd. at 7:30 a.m. Trip led by the Duncans.

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, as is sharing gas expenses with the driver.
