Online RSVPs now open! (Event limited to 15 spots!)
Tuesday, December 15, 2015
Eagle Lakes Community Park, 8:00—10:00 AM
Join us for a morning of bird watching with Arthur Sissman.
Arthur has been an avid birdwatcher in Southern Florida for 20 years and has led tours for local, national, and international visitors to Southwest Florida. Enjoy the natural beauty of the marsh, spot and identify as many bird species as possible, learn names of local and migrant birds and observe their behavior, combine many eyes to see more birds than any one of us could see alone. Keep track and count how many species we can find.
Cost: $15 per person. Arthur will be graciously donating his time, and the cost will be contributed to the Club's School and Education Fund.
Limited to 15 participants due to the nature of the event.
