Park Rangers to conduct bird migration survey at Ferndale Preserve

RELEASE DATE: April 26, 2011

FERNDALE — The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is conducting a Spring bird migration survey at Ferndale Preserve, located off County Road 455 in South Lake County, on Saturday, April 30, from 7 to 11 a.m.

Experienced and novice bird-watchers, are encouraged to help Lake County park rangers survey Ferndale Preserve for migratory birds that are currently residing in the 192-acre preserve, located on the western shore of Lake Apopka. Its high elevation and diverse ecosystem provide habitat for numerous birds, butterflies, reptiles, mammals and amphibians.

The activity may include hiking over uneven or difficult terrain for a distance of over 2 miles. It is helpful, but not necessary for participants to be able to identify most common species by sight or sound. All survey-takers must have their own binoculars and field guides, and are encouraged to bring water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes. Reservations are not required, but 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.
