Field Trip: Birdsong Nature Center – Saturday, July 11, 2020 (half-day)
On Saturday, July 11th, we will spend the morning exploring Birdsong Nature Center, located in southern Georgia just three miles north of the Florida state line. Some of the species we hope to see in the butterfly garden include Hoary Edge and several kinds of swallowtails and skippers. We will also walk some of the nature trails. July is a good time to see an abundance of butterflies at Birdsong, as well as dragonflies, and this beautiful property is always an excellent place for butterfly photography.
We will practice appropriate social distancing (six feet apart from each other) on this event. Face masks are to be worn through the entrance checkpoint; they can be removed once you have parked your vehicle. Please read and follow Birdsong’s COVID guidelines at http://www.birdsongnaturecenter.org/COVID_Info.pdf.
To caravan from Tallahassee, meet at 8:30 AM EDT near Newk’s at the corner of Village Square Blvd. and Thomasville Road just north of I-10. Or you can join us at Birdsong Nature Center at 9:00 AM EDT. See http://www.birdsongnaturecenter.org/ for directions. Bring a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, water, and binoculars (close focusing ones if you have them). If you plan to stay past 12:30 PM EDT, bring a picnic lunch. There is a $5 admission fee if you are not a member of Birdsong Nature Center. Contact Dave McElveen at 850-841-0899 or email@example.com if you have questions. Submitted by Dave McElveen
