Come along with us to view birds at the Big Tree Natural Area!

What will you see beyond the Big Tree? Join us for a hike through the Big Tree Natural Area, an area of the park that is otherwise closed to the public. We'll observe birds in a variety of habitats including live oak forests, coastal prairies, marshes, and bay shorelines. We may even be lucky enough to see an endangered Whooping Crane!

When: Fridays from 8:30-11:00 A.M.

Where: Check in early at park headquarters to obtain a tour ticket, then meet at the Big Tree parking lot. *There are no facilities available at the Big Tree Natural Area.

Bring: Binoculars, water, comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, camera, and weather-appropriate clothing. The park offers a limited number of binoculars available for loan, but it is best to bring your own.
