Please join Peace River Audubon for a Walkabout at Hathaway Park. We will explore a variety of habitats near Shell Creek on two short trails. This beautiful small park is known mainly to those who use the park ramps for canoeing and kayaking, but there are a number of bird species that make this site interesting for birding and nature study. Some of the birds seen in previous years include Painted Bunting, Bald Eagle, Barred Owl, Limpkin, Swallow-tailed Kite and Crested Caracara. Maybe we will be lucky. The park is located at 35461 Washington Loop Road, off Rt. 17 north of Punta Gorda. County parking fees of $0.75/hour may apply. Meet at the first (original) parking lot at 8 AM. Dress for the weather and easy walking. Sunscreen and bug repellent may be useful. Bring binoculars, water and a snack if desired. The walk will be 2 -3 hours. For further information call Eleanor Marr at 941-624-4182.
