Park rangers to guide Spring Migrant & Nature Hike at Palatlakaha River Park

RELEASE DATE: April 7, 2010

CLERMONT — Lake County park rangers will lead a Spring Migrant & Nature Hike on Saturday, April 10, from 8 to 10 a.m. at Palatlakaha River Park, located at 12325 Hull Road, Clermont.

This 1-mile hike will pass through a variety of habitats that should hold many resident and migrating birds, along with other wildlife, such as Gopher Tortoises, Black Racers and Marsh Rabbits.

“With spring bird migration approaching its peak, hikers should enjoy views of Northern Parula, American Redstart and many other colorful and sometimes elusive species on their journey north or preparing to raise babies right here in Lake County,” said Gallus Quigley, Lake County Park Ranger.

The 1-mile hike will be over semi-improved trails. Park rangers encourage participants to wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Hikers should also bring binoculars, field guides, cameras, insect repellent, sunscreen, water and snacks.

Reservations are required. For more information or reservations, call the Lake County Parks & Trails Division at (352) 253-4950 or e-mail parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov.
