Lake County invites volunteers to help with bird & butterfly survey at PEAR Park

RELEASE DATE: September 7, 2010

LEESBURG — The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is seeking a few bird-watching and butterfly-watching volunteers to help conduct a bird & butterfly survey at PEAR Park, located at 5336 University Ave., Leesburg, on Saturday, Sept. 11, from 7 to 10 a.m.

“Experience is a plus but none is needed, just a desire to help,” said Lake County Park Ranger Gallus Quigley. “Migration will be just getting underway so it’s a great time to put behind the summer doldrums and see some cool birds and butterflies.”

Participants are expected to hike about 2 to 3 miles over sometimes uneven terrain. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, field guides, water, snacks, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes.

Reservations are required. Experienced bird watchers who wish to volunteer for this activity are encouraged to call the Lake County Parks & Trails Division at (352) 253-4950 or e-mail parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov.
