Field Trip to Tom Bennett Park

February 10 @ 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Free

Join Tony and Patty Ford on a guided bird walk through Tom Bennett Park. 

Tom Bennett Park, located near I-75, combines classic park recreational opportunities with conservation areas perfect for nature walks and wildlife viewing. Manatee County purchased the majority of the 200 acre park in April 2003, with assistance from the Florida Communities Trust under the Florida Forever Program.

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.
