Urban Birding

at Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve

in Cape Coral

Sunday, December 27, 2015, at 8:00 AM

(note: this is a change of venue from the originally planned trip to the Golf Club)

At 365 acres, Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve is the second largest preserved green space in Cape Coral. Located just north of Veteran’s Parkway, Four Mile Cove / “Eco Park” is a brackish water wetland area that features a walking trail, visitor center, and a Veterans Memorial Area. Visitors of any age can walk through the preserve on the boardwalk. Possible wildlife sightings include eagles, ibis, herons, other wading & migratory birds, raccoons, snakes, etc. Be sure to stop at the visitor’s center for information on programs, local wildlife, trail guides and the “last chance to use the facilities.”

This will be an excellent opportunity to start walking off the holiday excesses.

You’ll want to bring your camera, field glasses, sunscreen, and water. Dress appropriately for the weather. There is a short walk from the parking area.
