Great Florida Birding Trail
A program of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Great Florida Birding Trail connects almost 500 sites throughout the state of Florida specifically selected for their excellent birdwatching, wildlife viewing or educational opportunities. Designed to conserve and enhance Florida's wildlife habitats, this 2,000 mile self guided highway trail promotes birdwatching and wildlife viewing activities, conservation education and economic opportunity throughout the state. I took this picture while visiting the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, which is one of the gateways for the Panhandle Florida section of the trail.
