FERNDALE— The Lake County Parks & Trails Division will conduct a monthly bird & butterfly survey on Friday, May 20 from 7 to 11 a.m. at Ferndale Preserve, located off County Road 455 in South Lake County.
Experienced and novice bird-watchers, are encouraged to help Lake County park rangers survey Ferndale Preserve for birds and butterflies that visit the 192-acre preserve, located on the western shore of Lake Apopka. 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. Space is limited, so reservations are required.
