STA-5 Birding Check Lists:
Reminders: Bring sunscreen, water, lunch/snacks. A spotting scope is very helpful and if you have walkie-talkie’s bringing them would be helpful. Wear hats and closed-toe shoes. Tour-participants must stay on the levee. We are allowed to drive around the levee. There is a port-o-let on site.
Lunch is on your own. There are no local places to obtain food.
For Non-CBC trips, you must contact Margaret England from the Hendry-Glades Audubon Society Cell: 863-517-0202
A small donation of $1.00 is requested for the Hendry-Glades Audubon Society so they can continue to offer access to this wonderful birding spot.
