Location map

 

Sweetwater Wetlands Park is on the south side of Gainesville, 3/4 mile east of the intersection of SW 13th Street/US 441 and Williston Road. Look for the sign on the south side of the road. We’ll meet at the covered shelter at the bathrooms.

 

We meet every Wednesday from September – May, at 8:30 a.m. to search for wetland birds like Least Bittern, Purple Gallinule, and Limpkin in the treatment wetlands and forest-dwelling birds in the cypress preserve.

 

Walks are free, but park admission is $5/car. Bring sunscreen and water.

  1. How difficult is this walk? I am a beginner.

    • This morning’s walk was a little over a mile on a level limerock trail that encircles a man-made marsh. We paused along the way to look at the birds we encountered. We started at 8:30 and finished at 11:00.
