April 22 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Timucuan Preserve is Jacksonville’s national park! It provides thousands of acres of stopover habitat for birds as they migrate through the area.
During spring migration, birds from around the world make Timucuan Preserve their temporary homes. To celebrate, Timucuan Preserve will host World Migratory Bird Day with activities to help you connect with the preserve and the birds that live here:
- special arts and crafts
- hikes at 10:30 and 1:00
- the Great Migration Obstacle Course
- and spotting scope chats
Ever wanted to get into birding, but not sure how? Tag along with the Duval Audubon Society free bird hikes being offered at Fort Caroline National Memorial during the event. Limited edition Migratory Bird Day stickers will be available for pick up at Fort Caroline National Memorial.
All activities are free and open to the public. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for all hikes. Closed-toed shoes required. A reusable water bottle and insect repellent are highly recommended.
