Pine Lily Preserve Field Trip, East Orange County

On Saturday, September 20, 2014, Orange Audubon Society will visit Pine Lily Preserve in east Orange County. 

This 431-arce Orange County Green PLACE property borders Hal Scott Preserve, helping to expand the wildlife corridor in the Econlockhatchee River Basin.  The property is named after one of the threatened species on the property, Pine Lily or Catesby’s Lily (Lilium catesbaei).

For more information about the property and directions, see:  http://www.orangecountyfl.net/Environment/NaturalLands/ExploreOurNaturalLands/tabid/1275/Default.aspx#.U-jQxfldXng

Meet at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of the Pine Lily Preserve located at the south end of south C.R. 13 in Bithlo. No registration is required. 

There are no facilities.  Bring plenty to drink, sun protection, insect protection, birding gear and lunch (for after the hike). 

We will walk about 3.5 miles at a pace to observe plants and animals along the way.  Please join us.

    Mary's report: Ten attended the OAS field trip to Pine Lily Preserve in Bithlo on September 20. The group observed at least 20 bird species including Wild Turkey, White Ibis, Downy Woodpecker, White-eyed Vireo, Tufted Titmouse and Carolina Wren. Other wildlife included White-tailed Deer, Oak Toad, Southern Toad, Leopard Frog, Little Blue Dragonlet, Two-lined Spittlebug, Barred Yellow, Thread-waisted Wasp, and Golden Silk Orbweaver with silver kleptoparasites (Argyrodes nephilae) in its web.

    Wildflowers in bloom included Water Cowbane, Shortleaf Rosegentian, Yelloweyed Grass, Yellow Stargrass, Bladderwort, Orange Milkwort, Savannah Milkweed, Drumheads, Fringed Meadowbeauty, Tall Elephantsfoot, and Pennyroyal. The Chalky Bluestem was showy with the rain drops covering it. We looked for Pine Lilies in the wet prairie in the southwest corner of the property, but none were seen this trip. Despite the constant rain, the group enjoyed the beautiful flora and fauna.

      Mary and Randy did a great job leading the group. Despite the rain, they had such positive attitudes and Mary's knowledge of nature is remarkable.
