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.  Only registered people may attend.

DESCRIPTION: Audubon Sweet Springs Nature Preserve with its two viewing platforms and meandering trails will allow us panoramic views of the estuary, wetlands and mudflats that attract our shorebirds. The pond lures ducks and the surrounding expansive variety of vegetation harbors many other species who breed here and those that migrate through during the fall. 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
