Our February field trip is to Archbold Biological Station in Lake Placid. It is a working scientific field station that is located in the Florida scrub habitat. When we arrive we will be met by Dustin Angell, the education coordinator, who will take us on a guided walking tour of the Florida scrub. The fee for this walking tour will be paid for by our own PRAS organization. We hope to see a variety of birds that live in this habitat. The guided walking tour will end around 11:00 AM and there is a shaded picnic area for lunch. There are restrooms and a learning center with exhibits for you to explore. In order to attend this field trip you must register with both Phyllis Cady, the local coordinator, and with the Archbold Biological Station. Please contact Phyllis at 941-286-7638 or at, that’s ps_cady. Leave your email address and she will send you the link to register. Each person must register as there is a limit of 25 people. For those who choose to stay for the afternoon, there is an optional buggy tour of a working cattle ranch located 8 miles east of the biological station. There will be a $15 fee per person to view the ranch wildlife and learn about Florida’s ranch lands. There is a limit of 15 people for this adventure so you must register. When you sign up for the free guided walking tour there is an option to sign up for the Ranch Buggy Tour and you will be asked to pay by credit card at that time. To learn more about the Archbold Biological Station visit Others who have taken this field trip have recommended it highly. Please remember to wear sensible shoes, bring water, repellent, and sunscreen. Don’t forget a picnic lunch if you are staying for the Ranch Buggy Tour. When you have contacted me and are on my list I will send information about directions, carpooling, and meeting times. Phyllis Cady – Field Trip Leader
