Field Trip to Circle Bar B Preserve, Polk County – Saturday, February 22, 2020

Peace River Audubon is sponsoring a trip to Circle Bar B Preserve in Polk County on Saturday, February 22, 2020. All are invited to join us. Circle Bar B boasts a large variety of bird species, making it a “must do” for avid birders. Wading birds, raptors, warblers, and waterfowl are commonly found there. A recent visit also featured vireos, buntings, sparrows, and woodpeckers.

Our outing will begin at 9:00am near the Discovery Center located near the parking lot within the Preserve. The bird walk will be three hours in duration, and there will also be a two-hour option available for those who wish to check out the Discovery Center. We will break at 12 noon for lunch – plan a picnic, as there are many outdoor pavilions near the Discovery Center. Though the walk officially ends at 12:00, participants may wish to extend their stay at Circle Bar B as there are many other interesting things to see and do there.

Meet us at 7:00am sharp in the Walmart parking lot near Calvers, on Kings Highway, just North of I-75 exit 170, or meet us near the Discovery Center at Circle Bar B where washroom facilities are available. Please let us know if you intend to meet us at the Preserve. As it is a two-hour drive to Circle Bar B, it is imperative that we get under way as soon as possible after 7:00am.

For further information please contact Kevin Gushue at 709-770-8591 or email
