Field Trip to Leffis Key Preserve

May 1 @ 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM


Join Kathy Doddridge on a guided bird walk through Leffis Key Preserve.

A paradise for bird lovers, Leffis Key is home to a myriad of avian species. Equip yourself with a pair of binoculars, and you could witness ospreys soaring over the mangrove forest, warblers providing a beautiful soundtrack, egrets wading through the marshes, or even the elusive yellow-crowned night heron.

Everyone is welcome to attend walks. 

When going bird watching it is important to be well-prepared and comfortable. Here is a checklist of what to bring and wear: 

  • Wear comfortable shoes since there will be walking
  • Hat to shield you from the sun and reduce glare
  • Binoculars for close up view of birds. 
  • Field guide, eBird & Merlin apps are helpful in bird identification – your guides will help 
  • Water to stay hydrated
  • Sunscreen and Insect Repellant 

Meet in the parking lot.
