Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive (Apopka, FL)

December 9 @ 6:30 am - 1:00 pm

Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive
Sunday, December 9th, 2018, 6:30AM-1:00PM

For decades the fields north of Lake Apopka were cultivated for vegetables by the Duda family. About 20 years ago the St. Johns Water Management District bought those fields, and now they grow birds and other wildlife.

Join trip leader Howard Adams for a driving tour through the brushy wetlands of the Lake Apopka Restoration Area, one of the best birding areas in the state. Fulvous Whistling-Ducks are regular there, and rarities often show up; in 2017 a Fork-tailed Flycatcher was present for several months.

Meet in the Target parking lot on Archer Road just east of I-75.

Difficulty: 1 (trip within easy access of vehicle and/or level terrain one mile or less).
