Thursday, March 10 Nature Walk
Now that the weather is warmer, there are more butterflies flitting about and the migratory birds are beginning to arrive. The first Swallowtail Kite sighting of the season has occurred and while in the woods last week, I saw and heard several Northern Parulas. I think our next nature walk in the Lower Suwannee NWR will be a longer one than usual, so if you plan to attend, please expect the walk to take much of the morning. We will walk behind the gates on a grassy trail for 3 miles.
I hope to see some spring flowers, butterflies, an alligator or two and, hopefully, a Swallowtail Kite flying overhead! Wear long pants, good walking shoes and please be prepared for ticks. They should also be more active now! If you have binoculars, please bring them along for bird and alligator watching! Since it will be warm, bring water to drink and if you like, a snack.
We will meet at the Cedar Key Town Park parking lot at 8:30am to car pool to the Refuge and will enter the Refuge by way of the south entrance to the Nature Drive off CR 347. If you would like to meet there, we should arrive at the south entrance around 8:45 or 8:50. From the south entrance we will drive about half way through the Nature Drive to the end of Pond 4 Road. The walk will begin from there.
