Let's go for a walk/hike at Crabtree Nature Center:
1,182 acres of woodland, wetland and prairie provides a rest stop along the migratory bird highway. 260 species have been recorded using these habitats, with at least 89 species breeding onsite. Bird watchers can stroll through the trails to view birds along the way or stop at the blind to view the hosts of waterfowl in spring and fall. The official website: http://fpdcc.com/nature-centers/crabtree-nature-center
We can meet at the entrance walkway of the nature center right at the parking lot. I will be the one awaiting you at 9:00am holding a monopod / camera/ telephoto lens in hand. We will wait until 9:10am for the late arrivals. Together we will check out the visitor center first and then continue on the trails.. I have been there only once and I believe it's about 3-4 miles or a bit more. We can stop at certain interest points to take photos or watch birds. I suggest the use of bug spray, long pants, and comfortable hiking shoes, and a hat. Do not wonder off of the trail paths. Do not feed the wild life. And we should walk as a group to avoid losing one another.
As we will be in the nature, by participating in this meetup, all participants must agree to be solely responsible for their own safety, therefore completely releasing the hosts and organizers of this meetup from all legal liabilities- i.e. bug bites, snake bites, poison ivy, ticks, bird / other animal attacks, and etc...
