Landfills tend to attract several species of birds, including gulls, eagles, and even ducks when ponded water is available.
Carmen will host Hernando Audubon members, led by Program Chair Nicky Armstrong, on a tour of the county's north landfill on February 5.
Participants will be able to learn about the recycling and compost programs and will have an opportunity to view birds. Details are on the Field Trips page.
