Meet trip leader Debbie Segal in the Target parking lot at Archer Road and I-75 to carpool to Ocala’s new treatment wetland park. Construction is not yet complete, but the City of Ocala is graciously allowing Alachua Audubon to tour the new park and bird at the wetlands. There is no telling what we’ll see but if there’s water in the wetland cells we can expect to find ducks, waders, and perhaps even a few wintering shorebirds.
Since the site is not yet open to the public, the gate will be closed after we enter. If you wish to meet us at the site, please be at 2105 NW 21st Street, Ocala, at 9 a.m. sharp. Please contact Debbie first for directions and instructions.
Bring sunscreen and water.
Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain and/or walking distances one to two miles).
