Birding Masters Tract with SJCA and Duval Audubon (Hastings)
November 9, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Joins us as Sue Killeen leads St. Johns County Audubon and Duval Audubon on a bird walk at the Masters Tract Regional Stormwater Treatment Facility.
In an effort to reduce high nutrient levels, specifically Nitrogen (N) and Phosphorus (P) in the Lower St Johns River Basin and Deep Creek the county has designed and built a system of wetlands to drain and filter stormwater runoff from agricultural and residential areas. Situated near Deep Creek Conservation Area, St. Johns County staff manage water levels in the wetland cells to mimic the natural wet and dry seasons.
Sandhill Cranes, numerous waders, migrating warblers, and raptors are all on the list at this very special location.
Wear good walking shoes, hat, and bring water, binoculars, and a scope if you have one. If not, no worries. We will share! Sunscreen and bug spray is recommended. Restrooms are not available here.
