A guided hike of this National Wildlife Refuge along the St. John’s River. This field trip is a follow-up to our program about the St. John's River as viewed by three kayakers.
The refuge has overlapping zones between subtropical and temperate climates providing a variety of habitats and wildlife. The impoundments provide resting and feeding areas for thousands of waterfowl, wading birds and shorebirds: Yellowlegs, Limpkins, Fulvous Whistling-Ducks, Short-billed Dowitchers, American Bitterns are some that may be seen. We will walk along dikes in the sun so bring a hat, sunscreen sun glasses.
MEET: 10:00 a.m. at the Park office/Education Center. Carpool leaves from Sanford Library at 9:00 a.m.
