Meet trip leader Deena Mickelson in the Target parking lot on Archer Road for a visit to this University of Florida property near Bronson. The UF observatory sits on 80 acres of turkey oak sandhill and rosemary scrub surrounded by pastures. We won’t be looking through the observatory’s telescope – it’s daytime, after all – but we’ll bird the slopes of the hill for late fall migrants, and we might run into a Sherman’s Fox Squirrel or two. Bathroom facilities and running water are available on the property. There is room to park, but the last stretch of road is sandy, so carpooling may be preferred. Access to the observatory is restricted, so this is a one-time-only event.
