Ferndale Preserve

This 192 acre Lake County Preserve is located on the western shore of Lake Apopka and you can expect to see enormous numbers of wintering birds on this ranger-guided tour.  The Preserve boasts fifty species of butterflies and numerous reptiles and amphibians.  There is a short trail of about a half mile and a longer one of a mile and a half.    It is a protected historic site with scenic vistas because of its location near the highest point in the peninsula of Florida.

Meet at the Publix on SR 46 (5240 West SR 46) at 9:00 a.m. to carpool or at the Preserve at 9:45.

Cost: free

    Beautiful spot for LBBs--lots of them. Many sparrows passing through with migration in mind. Great challenges for the experts. :)

    Hey! A change of plans to meet for the Ferndale trip. Instead of the library, meet at the Publix on SR 46. That's 5240 west SR 46, Sanford, 32771. Meet there at 9:00a.m.
