Note that all activities for the Wednesday Bird Walks at the Wetlands, Zen Birding, and Family Birding are currently on hold due to the pandemic. BIrds & Brews is back though! Check the calendar for the time..
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.
