Vibrant outdoor locale offers exciting exploration opportunities

RELEASE DATE: February 11, 2013

TAVARES — The Lake County Parks & Trails Division invites nature enthusiasts and visitors to explore Lake County’s lush and bio-diverse parks and reserves.

“Our reserves and nature areas are rich in wildlife and scenery,” said Gallus Quigley, park ranger with Lake County’s Parks & Trails Division. “Guided tours offer the opportunity to explore corners of our parks that you may have never seen before.”

• Bird and Butterfly Survey
7 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 16
Lake May Reserve, County Road 44A, Eustis
Experienced birders, butterfly watchers and interested volunteers are invited to help park rangers with a survey at this restoration habitat. The ability to identify the most common birds and butterflies will be helpful, but not necessary. Participants should have their own binoculars and field guides. This activity will include hiking about two miles on trails.

The event is free, and pre-registration is recommended because of space limitations. To maximize the nature experience for outside events, participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, field guides, water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes.

For more information about upcoming events, or to make reservations to attend, call the Lake County Parks & Trails Division at 352-253-4950, email parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov or visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/parks.
