Feb. 9 — A scrub and scrub-jay journey with an expert
Join Florida scrub jay biologist Ralph Risch on a guided walk through Seminole State Forest for a chance to spot this threatened species, which is the one bird found only in Florida – just about 6,000 left down from an estimated 100,000 in the 1920s. The forest is home to about 100. You’ll learn about its scrub habitat and controlled burns, visit some rare and unique plant locations and stop to see some of the bird territories. You’ll also see other habitats, search for other bird species and hopefully see some other wildlife.
Meet at the Bear Pound parking area north of SR46 at 8:00 AM. Bring a camera, binoculars, and your favorite field guides. Also, bring a packed lunch if you wish to eat with us after the hike. Wear closed toed shoes, no sandals or flip-flops, please.
Park entry fee: $2:00
