Wednesday Bird Walks at the Wetlands

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 hat, binoculars, sunscreen and water.
