Lake County Park Rangers to lead nature hike for beginner bird watchers

RELEASE DATE: March 18, 2011

FERNDALE — The Lake County Parks & Trails Division will lead a Beginning Birders Hike on Saturday, March 26 from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Ferndale Preserve, located off County Road 455 in South Lake County.

Park Rangers will help participants learn how to identify common birds by sight or sound, all while enjoying the picturesque scenery offered by the 192-acre preserve.

The preserve is on the western shore of Lake Apopka and has a combined equestrian and hiking trail that offers stunning vistas of the lake and surrounding areas.  The activity may include hiking over uneven or difficult terrain for a distance of over 2 miles.

For the best viewing experience, it is recommended that participants bring their own binoculars and field guides, and are encouraged to bring water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes. Space is limited, so reservations are encouraged.

For more information or reservations, call the Lake County Parks & Trails Division at (352) 253-4950, e-mail parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov or log on to www.lakecountyfl.gov/parks.
