We welcome you the first Saturday of each month October through April, to join us for a hike on La Chua Trail and learn about birds. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. This birding hike is an out-and-back trip of approximately 3 miles in total length, in an open marsh habitat with a large diversity of plants and wildlife. Meet us in the La Chua Trail parking lot; the north entrance to Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, by 9:00 a.m.
Hikes are limited to 20 people. Reserve your spot by clicking the registration button on this page. Registration for each hike will open approximately 30 days prior to the hike date.
Hikes are free, but regular park admission fees apply. Park admission at La Chua Trail is $4.00 per vehicle, cash only, or free with a Florida State Parks Annual Pass.
Binoculars are available for loan during the hike, but supplies are limited and preference given first to those with reservations.
No pets permitted.
This program is supported by Paynes Prairie and Alachua Audubon volunteers.
