Austin Cary is the University of Florida’s teaching and research forest, 2080 acres of pine flatwoods, cypress wetlands, and fire-maintained longleaf pine and wiregrass habitat.
We will drive the dirt road and then hike through the forest in search of Brown-headed Nuthatch, Bachman’s Sparrows, Red-headed Woodpeckers, and other pinewoods species.
Meet trip leader Debbie Segal at the entrance to the forest located at 10625 NE Waldo Rd. Gainesville.
Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain and/or walking distances one to two miles).
