ST. MARKS NWR

December 6, 2022 @ 8:00 am - December 8, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

St. Marks NWR south of Tallahassee.

Join field trip 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 Tuesday in time to bird the afternoon and finish on Thursday 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 a Wakulla River boat ride ($8).

A block of rooms (each with 2 queen beds) 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. 2, and ask for the “Pensacola Audubon” group rate.

If you need to cancel, you must call the motel no later than Saturday, Dec 3 (48 hours before the planned arrival date).

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 contact Lucy Duncan at 850-932-4792 or town_point@bellsouth.net and leave your name, telephone number and email address. A detailed itinerary will be emailed in late November. There will be a limited number of participants.

Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope, as well as sunscreen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks on all trips.

Please do not wear scented cologne, perfumes or aftershave on field trips. It distracts from the experience in nature, and some participants are highly sensitive to it.
