Lake County Park and Trails invites bird enthusiasts to a Beginning Birders Class Field Trip

RELEASE DATE: February 16, 2012

LEESBURG — The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is inviting residents to take part in the Beginning Birders Class field trip on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area, located on Emeralda Island Road in Leesburg.

Parks Rangers will accompany participants as they get hands-on birding experience while enjoying everything the Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area has to offer.

This class is the field trip portion of the Beginning Birders classes, with the Wood Duck parking lot serving as the meeting point. Priority will be given to participants who have previously attended at least one Beginning Birders class, as spaces for the field trip are limited. Those who have not attended a Beginning Birders class may still participate, if space is available. Attendance is free and pre-registration is encouraged.

The Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area is widely considered to be the “crown jewel” of Lake County’s birding and wildlife viewing locations. This 7,089-acre site features wetlands and uplands that help protect and preserve the water quality in Lake Griffin.

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