The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, in cooperation with Citrus County Audubon Society, will host the first bird walk of the season on Pepper Creek Trail on Saturday, November 23, 2013.

An experienced birder from Citrus County Audubon, will lead the walk on this trail--one of 19 birding trails in Citrus County that are part of the West Section of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. Participants should meet at 7:45 a.m. at the entrance to the park’s Visitor Center. The bird walk will begin at 8:00 a.m. Binoculars and a field guide are recommended. Participation in the bird walk on Pepper Creek is free.

Pepper Creek Trail is approximately 3/4 mile in length and follows along the park’s tram road, connecting the Visitor Center on U.S. 19 and the West entrance on Fishbowl Drive. Participants can either walk back down the trail or wait and take the first returning boat after the park opens. There is no charge to use the Pepper Creek trail or to take the return boat trip.

Bird walks are planned for October, November, and monthly from January through April. For more information and to register, call (352) 628-5343, ext. 1002.
