FIELD TRIP- St. Marks NWR

December 4 - December 6

Join leaders Bob and Lucy Duncan to bird one of our nation’s finest wildlife refuges. We expect to see a variety of birds in diverse habitats. A moderate pace will encompass easy walking as well as roadside birding on the refuge.

We will arrive on Wednesday in time to bird the afternoon and finish on Friday around noon following a boat trip and birding at Wakulla Springs State Park.

We hope to see manatees and close views of ducks and water birds on the Wakulla River boat ride ($8).

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, Nov 22, 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 Wed., Nov 27.

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, P.O. Box 17484, Pensacola, FL 32522, 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 November.

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.

Questions? Call Lucy Duncan at 932-4792 or email her at town_point@bellsouth.net.

New Requirement—All participants in published events and excursions must sign a Release and Indemnification Form which is valid through 2019.  Leaders will have forms for those who have not yet signed one.  The form is online: fmwaudubon.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Release_Indemnification.pdf
