Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge Field Trip

January 19 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Space Coast Audubon member Marilyn Taylor will be leading our field trip to Black Point Dr at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (MINWF) on Saturday, January, 19, 2019. Meet at 8 am at Sand Point Pk, 101 N. Washington Ave, Titusville. Sand Point Park has restrooms, and is on the NE corner of Garden St/Washington Ave (US 1) BEFORE you cross the bridge, on the left, heading out to the refuge. NOTE: Sand Point Park is rather large, we will be at the restrooms adjacent to the bridge. Finish time: 1:00 pm, back at Sand Point Park. We typically see a variety of ducks and if we are lucky, perhaps a Sora. This is a fun, easy and productive driving trip. There is also a restroom at Black Point Drive. For those interested, bagels and coffee will be served at our host’s condo across the street from Sand Point Park. You can bring a packed lunch if you prefer. Please contact Marilyn at operacrazed39@gmail.com if you have any questions. If you have trouble finding the meeting location, call Rochelle at 321-506-1493 or email (membership@spacecoastaudubon.org )

NOTE: MINWR charges $15 per car to access Black Point Drive. If you have a National Park Pass the fee is waved. We’ll try to coordinate car pool to maximize use of members with passes. Each car will have a Walkie Talkie radio to hear sightings.
