RELEASE DATE: August 17, 2012

TAVARES – The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is inviting residents to take part in two of its upcoming Monthly Bird and Butterfly Surveys.

The first will be held on Friday, Aug. 24, at the Palatlakaha Environmental and Agricultural Reserve (PEAR Park) Nature Center, located at 4800 University Ave. in Leesburg, from 7 to 11 a.m. The second of the surveys will take place on Saturday, Aug. 25, from 7 to 11 a.m. at the Ferndale Preserve, located at 19220 County Road 455 in Ferndale.

With both events, volunteers will assist Park Rangers in monitoring the diversity of birds and butterflies at each location, as ongoing restoration and land management continues at the sites. Experience is a plus, but not required.
