Lake County rangers to guide nature walk at Lake Idamere Park

RELEASE DATE: May 16, 2008

TAVARES — Lake County park rangers will lead a bird and butterfly walk on Saturday, May 24, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Lake Idamere Park, located at 12335 County Road 448, Tavares. During the 1.5-mile walk, park rangers will identify butterflies, birds and other wild animals.

“As spring is waning, many bird species will be actively nesting, laying eggs or feeding young,” said Park Ranger Gallus Quigley.

Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Park rangers also recommend bringing binoculars, field guides, insect repellent and water. After the guided tour, participants are encouraged to explore the park's amenities including the dog park, fishing pier or boundless playground. Guests can also pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it at the park's pavilion with barbecue grills.

Participants are encouraged to reserve a spot for the nature walk by Thursday, May 22. The walk is limited to first 25 participants. For more information or to make reservations for the guided tour, call Gallus Quigley at (352) 742-0992 or e-mail parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov.
