The big oaks and shoreline cypresses at Powers Park, and hardwoods along Lakeshore Drive can be excellent places to observe migrant activity. Meet trip leader Barbara Shea at Powers Park to check the trees along the boat channel and scan the lake from the fishing pier before proceeding to Palm Point Park.
Difficulty: 1 (trip within easy access to the vehicle and/or level terrain one mile or less).
