FIELD TRIP- BLACKWATER RIVER

May 8 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join leaders Lucy and Bob Duncan exploring the rich ecosystems in Blackwater where many Northwest Florida birds breed.

We expect to find some of them and enjoy hearing their songs and calls while visiting this treasured forest.

We expect to see Red-cockaded Woodpeckers, the secretive Bachman’s Sparrow, late spring migrants, and breeding birds.

Some spring wild­flowers will still be in bloom, and we hope to access a seepage bog with rare pitcher plants.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the parking lot behind McDonald’s located at 6485 Hwy 90 in Milton. We will finish before lunch.

Participation is currently limited due to the pandemic.

You must register with Lucy Duncan at town_point@bellsouth.net .

Field trips are 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 are recommended on all trips. We will finish before lunchtime.

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.
