Earth Fest at Tuscawilla Park Was Great Fun For All

Van Guard High School Students Helped
with Nesting Box Tours using
Smart Phone Technology and
GPS Coordinates to locate the boxes.

 

Cub Scout Pack # 112 proudly displayed some of the nesting boxes
they built and educated visitors about how to properly build a
nesting box. A collection of nesting materials demonstrated that
birds are adaptive to the natural and man-made environment.
But naturally occurring materials are always the best.



Conservation Alert

Halapata Tastanaka saved for the Scrub Jay –
Land will stay with the South West Florida Water Management District and not be sold.

Halpata Tastanaki Preserve, a prior cow pasture, has been burned to promote the growth of scrub habitat for the nearby families of Florida Scrub-Jays and oaks are already growing on the property. Scrub-Jays do not migrate and this restored land will be able to provide habitat for new Scrub-Jay families and food and habitat for those nearby.

Florida is a great place for birding because of the year-round presence of a vast number of species.
