Each time I think about a nature walk, I am undecided about which trail to pick! They are each great! So I have made a list and marked the best time of the year to visit each trail. Hopefully, this will make it easier!
This next walk on Thursday, Dec 31 will be at Shell Mound and Dennis Creek Trail. It is a great place for a little history, some bird watching, and some great views of salt marsh, and a view over a fresh water pond where we may see some ducks and heron. The tide will be mostly out, so we may even get a good look at wading birds. In the past, I have seen a wide variety of wildlife here, including feral hogs. I hope you will be able to join me on this last nature walk in 2015!
Those wishing to car pool from Cedar Key, meet at the town park parking lot at 8:30am. My home number is 352-543-6738 and I will have my cell phone with me 515-227-0683. If you would prefer to meet at Shell Mound, we will meet you in the car park around 8:45. Shell Mound can be reached from Hwy 347, south of the refuge and a few miles north of the turnoff from Hwy 24.
