September Bioblitz 

Become a biologist for a day (if you aren’t already) by joining FWC staff and subject matter experts during the Watermelon Pond Wildlife and Environmental Area Bioblitz on September 23. You will search for birds, plants, reptiles, amphibians, and insects to help biologists better understand the distribution of species in the area using the brand new Florida Nature Trackers program.

For all you birders, a special “early bird” event from 7:00 AM - 8:30 AM will offer a chance to view burrowing owls and, possibly, Bachman’s sparrows. 

Check back in the next issue of the Limpkin Times for registration details. We hope to see you there!

We want to hear from you! Send us your reports from the field, your photos, and birding/conservation related events in the community.
