Field Trip to Terra Ceia Preserve State Park – Hightower Trail

January 31 @ 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Join Billie & Jerry Knight on a guided bird walk through Terra Ceia Preserve State Park – Hightower Trail. 

Native and migrating birds take shelter in the lush forests along the trails. You may see little blue herons, white ibis, or even a bald eagle soaring above you. Keep a watchful eye for roseate spoonbills wading in the shallows.

Everyone is welcome to attend walks.

  • 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
