John Hintermister Memorial Field Trip
The late John Hintermister led the St. Marks trip every January for years, so we’ve named the trip after him in yet another inadequate attempt to honor the memory of a man who served Alachua Audubon for nearly 60 years – literally since its inception.
Meet Phil Laipis and Don Morrow (close friends of John’s) at the St. Marks visitor center on Saturday at 8 a.m. to begin an all-day visit to one of Florida’s premier winter birding spots. Expect birds in great numbers and variety.
Bring a lunch and plenty of water, and make motel reservations if you’re staying all weekend. Sunday’s meeting time and location will be decided on Saturday.
There is a limit of 20 people, so call Wild Birds Unlimited (352-381-1997) to register.
Entry fee $5 per vehicle. National Parks Pass and Duck Stamp are also accepted.
Difficulty: 3 (may involve elevation change, uneven terrain, and/or walking distances greater than two miles).
