Wine & Warblers

Perfect weather, fresh water in the swamp, delicious food and wine, and people excited to see birds in a virgin, old-growth, cypress-tupelo swamp made for a highly successful Wine & Warblers 2007!

Participants had something to eat and drink before heading out onto the 1.75-mile boardwalk with an expert birding guide. Along the way, guests saw warblers, Yellow-crowned Night Herons, Barred Owls, various snakes and even an otter! To ensure nobody became faint from a lack of sustinence, stations with wine and food were positioned around the boardwalk. Upon their return to the nature center, guests were treated to coffee and desserts and had an opportunity to compare notes with other groups. All this for only $35 and it all goes to support bird and habitat protection at the Francis Beidler Forest.

Mark you calendars now for Wine & Warblers 2008.
