  1. Hello,
    I am a former Park Ambassador at Depot Park and I am currently a Park Ranger for City of Ocala.
    Emily for the AAS came to Depot park and did a scavenger hunt program for us.
    I was wondering if she could send me that worksheet that was put together for the kids?
    I plan on doing more birding programs in the future and she inspired me to learn more about birds.
    Also, I would love her to have my contact info for future programs.
    Thank you,
    Caroline Rutkosky

  2. Hi,
    I’m Leslie with Seminole Audubon Society and we’re planning a multi-day field trip to the Gainesville area Oct 15-18, 2017. You’ve done a great job listing birding sites on your website! I’ll have to narrow down our choices for a 3 day visit, and would love some help from the locals.
    My initial thoughts are Paynes Prairie, Sweetwater Wetlands and the fall migrants at Newnan’s Lake. (The rest of the group may have to drag me kicking and screaming away from Newnan’s Lake, sounds like a good spot!). Of the birding sites on your list, are there any spots where we would have the option of a local guide?
    Some of us will be camping at Paynes Prairie, the rest staying at their choice of nearby hotel.
    I appreciate any suggestions.

    • On Oct. 18 at 8:30am, we have a walk led by a local expert as part of our weekly Wednesday Bird Walks at the Wetlands. We would love to have you join us. If you are unable to make that walk, let us know and we will see what we can do.
