Guided Bird Walk
January 18 @ 7:45 am - 10:30 am
An event every month that begins at 7:45 am on day Third of the month, repeating until March 21, 2020
Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, in cooperation with Citrus County Audubon Society, will host a bird walk on Pepper Creek Trail on the third Saturday, January through April and again in October and November.
An experienced birder from Citrus County Audubon will lead the walk. This trail is one of 19 birding trails in Citrus County that are part of the West Section of the Great Florida Birding Trail. Pepper Creek Trail is a fully accessible trail. Participants should meet at 7:45 a.m. at the entrance to the park’s Visitor Center. The bird walk will begin at 8:00 a.m. If you have binoculars and a field guide bring them, but they are not required. There is no charge to participate in the bird walk.
Pepper Creek Trail is approximately 3/4 mile in length and follows along the park’s tram road, connecting the Visitor Center on U.S. 19 and the West entrance on Fishbowl Drive. Participants can either walk back down the trail or wait and take the first returning boat after the park opens. For more information, call the park office at 352-628-5343.
