October 3 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
PLEASE NOTE: Attendance will be limited to no more than 20 people, and pre-registration is required. If you register and find you cannot attend, PLEASE cancel your registration to allow others to participate.
Reddie Point is THE hot spot during migration. The Preserve consists of 102 acres with trails and a fishing pier on the St. Johns River.
We’ll meet at the parking lot at 8:00 am, fill out the sign in sheet, and then move on to the shoreline and trails. We might see Black-crowned Night Heron; Wood Stork, Red-shouldered Hawk, woodpeckers, buntings and several different kinds of warblers. This is a great field trip for novice birders at the peak of migration.
Other than a portable toilet, there aren’t any restroom facilities at this location. Bring binoculars, water, snacks and insect repellent.
