Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

Event Description

Northern Pintail

Our target destination is the Merrit Island National Wildlife Refuge. We will meet and check in to caravan at the location listed below. Joan Tague will be the leader for the day. Be ready for a day of exploration. Radios will be available for communication purposes. It is recommended that you carry the radio at all times both in and out of the car. The leaders will use the radios to point out the birds.

The trip will be a leaders choice and may include Blackpoint Wildlife Drive and other locations. We will go where the birds lead us. Be prepared for a longer walk or two if we decide to explore areas not open to automobiles. Wear comfortable shoes and pack all of the essentials - snacks, lunch, hat, bug spray. If you wish to carpool, please arrange to ride with friends before joining the group in Port Orange. Car pools will not be organized by Halifax River Audubon.

This outing replaces our second attempt to visit Tosohatchee WMA near Christmas. A major hog hunt with guns and dogs will be conducted starting Friday, so once again we will delay our trip there.
