Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge

 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.

Cost: Free

    Beautiful morning with a little overcast and sprinkling. Guides were superb in their knowledge and enthusiasm for this lovely birding location. Good company too. ;)

    I'll drive from Apopka and meet you at the park office. Does anyone have a cell number to give me in case I can't find you? You could use the email option above for security. Thanks.
