ROAD TRIP- St. Marks Birding

January 11, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - January 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm

St. Marks birding with the Duncans to one of the southeast’s finest birding areas to see a variety of birds in diverse habitats.

We will see what the storm’s salt water intrusion has done, and will hope to see about 120 species for this trip!

The trip pace will be moderate with some walking.

We will arrive Friday in time to bird the afternoon and finish Sunday around noon. We hope to see manatees and close views of ducks and water birds on the Wakulla River boat ride ($8) within the State Park.

A limited block of rooms is being held for us at the Best Western Wakulla Inn & Suites located on Highway 98 near Crawfordville.

To make your room reservations, call 850-926-3737 before Friday, Dec. 28 and ask for the “Pensacola Audubon” group rates (king at $80 or two queen beds at $85 plus tax).

If needed, you must cancel your room no later than Jan. 4. When you make your room reservation, you must leave your credit card number with the motel.  All rooms are nonsmoking.

To sign up for the trip, send a $50 per participant contribution to FMW Audubon Society and call Lucy Duncan at 850-932-4792 and leave your name, telephone number and email address, or email her at town_point@bellsouth.net .  A detailed itinerary will be emailed in late December.
