Meet trip leader Chris Burney at Powers Park on Hawthorne Rd. to carpool to the Alachua Conservation Trust’s 500-acre Prairie Creek Preserve. The Preserve encompasses a variety of uplands and lowlands, and we’ll sample several of them in search of sparrows and winter feeding flocks. Wear rubber boots or old shoes you don’t mind getting wet, as the trail can be soggy or even flooded.
Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain and/or walking distances one to two miles).
