Explore the ecology of Florida’s coast with volunteer Diane Reed on an informative bird walk in Fort Matanzas’s diverse habitat. Please meet at the Fort Matanzas Visitor Center if you are interested in participating. The walk is from 9:30am to 11am.
Don’t forget to bring bug repellant, binoculars (park may have several pair for loan), and comfortable, closed-toe shoes. This bird walk is appropriate for all ages and difficulty level is mild, with some uneven or sandy terrain encountered during the walk.
Fort Matanzas is open from 9:00am to 5:30pm. There is no entrance or parking fees required to visit the park, take the short ferry ride to the fort, or to participate in the bird walk. Programs and ferry service are subject to cancellation due to bad weather. For additional information, call 904-471-0116 or visit the park’s website.
