This will be Hernando Audubon Society's ninth field trip to the 1,267-acre former ranch acquired jointly in 2000 by Southwest Florida Water Management District and Polk County Environmental Lands Program. The former pastureland was restored to a marsh system, which has attracted a variety of wading birds and waterfowl, as well as Ospreys and Bald Eagles. At least 100 bird species have been photographed there, including the locally rare White-faced Ibis. Walking trails pass through freshwater marshes, oak hammocks, hardwood swamps, and along the shore of Lake Hancock. There are nine wide, interconnecting trails on the property, covering more than six miles. It is flat, easy walking, affording great views of marshland with many varieties of birds. There should be plenty of photo opportunities. Admission is free. Bring your own lunch and beverages. You can walk any distance you are comfortable with, as there are many options for trails. Stay for more birding after lunch if you like.
