RELEASE DATE: February 3, 2012

LEESBURG — The Lake County Parks & Trails Division will hold a Beginning Birders Walk on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Palatlakaha Environmental and Agricultural Reserve (PEAR Park) “Gateway,” located at 26701 U.S. Highway 27 in Leesburg.

Accompanied by Park Rangers, participants will learn the intricacies of identifying common birds, though various methods such as sight and sound, all while enjoying everything the park has to offer.
