FIELD TRIP -St. Marks

December 8 @ 2:30 pm - December 10 @ 2:00 pm

Friday – Sunday, December 8-10, 2017, St. Marks NWR.

Lucy & Bob Duncan will lead us to one of the Southeast’s finest birding areas to see a variety of birds in diverse habitats. We can anticipate 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 might see manatees and close views of alligators, ducks and water birds on Sunday’s 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 sign up, call Lucy Duncan at 850-932-4792 and leave your name, telephone number and email address, or email her at town_point@bellsouth.net.

Then send a $50 per participant contribution to FMW Audubon Society. To make your room reservations, call 850-926-3737 and ask for the “Pensacola Audubon” group rates (king at $80 or two queen beds at $85 plus tax).

All rooms are nonsmoking. A detailed itinerary will be emailed to participants prior to the trip. The number of participants will be limited.

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.
