FIELD TRIP:       Low Tide at Sweet Springs Nature Preserve

DATE:                  Thursday, December 15, 2022

TIME:                   8:00am to 10:00am

LEADER:            Mark Mushkat

Trip is limited to 12 participants - Signups will be taken for 24 hours. 12 participants will be randomly selected. The remainder will be put on standby status in case of cancellations.

Audubon Sweet Springs Nature Preserve with its two viewing platforms and meandering trails allows panoramic views of the estuary, wetlands and mudflat, and the multiple habitats within the preserve. Our wintering visitors are here and we never know what birds we will find, but it is always exciting. Dirt paths and level boardwalks make for easy walking of approximately 1 mile.

Wear sturdy walking shoes and dress in layers as it can be cool and windy. Bring binoculars, sunscreen, water and snacks as needed. Restroom (port-a-potty) is available at the East entrance. Rain cancels.

Experience Level: Beginning to Intermediate.
