Meet trip leader Rex Rowan in the Publix parking lot at the corner of Tower Rd. (SW 75th St.) and Archer Rd. The Kanapaha Prairie, a 700-acre grassland dotted with marshy ponds, is co-owned by The Conservation Fund and several surrounding landowners. Access is restricted, so field trips like this one are possible only every year or two. Expect grassland, marsh, and open-country birds like Marsh and Sedge Wrens, Savannah and Swamp Sparrows, Eastern Meadowlark, Loggerhead Shrike, and American Kestrel. 

 

Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain and/or walking distances one to two miles).
