Special thanks to
Jutta Geisler, Karen King and Bob Rope
with Friends of Orlando Wetlands for allowing us the use of their photographs.

Meet at 1 p.m. at Orlando Wetlands parking lot at 25155 Wheeler Road. Come early and bring your lunch if you wish. There are picnic tables at the park.

We have arranged for a tram to tour the wetlands. Seating capacity is limited to 14, so if you prefer to ride rather than walk the trails, please contact Eileen ASAP to reserve a seat.

This is a man-made wetland designed for wildlife and for purifying the water as it slowly makes its way to the St. John's River.

We will walk mostly on open berms for about two miles. Roseate Spoonbills, Purple Gallinules, and a variety of ducks and wading birds are regulars here. We might even see Black-necked Stilts, bitterns, rails or night-herons - almost anything is possible.

We finish around 5 p.m. and head to Titusville for dinner at Dixie Crossroads Restaurant. If you plan to stay for the trip to Merritt Island the following day, there are several motels available at the intersection of State Road 50 and I-95.
