Beach walk in Guana
Aug 21, 2010
An easy two-hour beach walk in the cool of the morning along one of the most pristine beaches in Florida with Naturalist Pete Johnson who will educate us on the critters and birds and flora of the beach. An excellent resource to bring along would be the book, Florida's Living Beaches-A Guide for the Curious Beachcomber by Blair and Dawn Witherington. A plant and animal checklist will be provided (from previous 2008 beach walk) and updated with anything new we discover on our walk.
Please bring water, sunscreen, a hat, swimsuit, binoculars and lunch if you want to lunch on the beach. After the walk you can, if you wish, visit the Environmental Education Center of GTMNERR, about 5 miles to the south, and see the great environmental exhibits. There is a $3 entrance fee to the beach and a $2 entrance fee to the Center.
No reservations are necessary. Children are very welcome, no pets please. Guests and members of the Audubon Society and the Native Plant Society have also been invited to participate.
