Brittany Sims has invited Historic City News readers of all ages to come meet the birds and participate in a free monthly bird walk this Sunday, October 13, from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. in the Anastasia State Park located at 300 Anastasia Park Road in St Augustine.
Participants will meet at the Island Beach Shop and Grill pavilion; located at the end of the main park drive. This fun and informative walk, led by a park volunteer, is open to participants of all birding levels.
“You will observe a diverse variety of shore birds, marsh birds, and hammock birds by walking the beach, boardwalks, nature trails, and other areas,” Simms told local Historic City News reporters. “Please dress for the weather and bring binoculars, water, comfortable walking shoes, and a field guide if you have one.”
There is no charge to participate, however, regular park entry fees apply; $4.00 for a single-occupant vehicle or $8.00 per vehicle with up to 8 people per vehicle. There is a $2.00 charge for pedestrians, bicyclists, extra passengers, and passengers in vehicle with a holder of an annual individual entrance pass.
