About the event

This field trip is on Friday and carpools can be independently formed.  The usual gathering and parking place for carpooling is the Kings Hwy Wal-Mart parking lot across from Culver’s (385 Kings Hwy) off I-75, Exit 170.  Sharon collects the $6 fee after she opens the gate to the Crowley Museum and Nature Center at 8:15AM.  It really is worth getting up early to view the wetlands around the Myakka River Bridge at 7:30AM. Scopes make the viewing so much better at the bridge; however, binoculars are all that is needed on the grounds. Ebird reports that 198 species have been seen at this hot birding spot!  Last year we saw 70 species!
