Calendar of Events
It's International Coastal Cleanup Day, and Duval Audubon is partnering with St. Johns RIVERKEEPER and the City of Jacksonville to clean up one of our very favorite birding spots, St. Augustine Road Fish Management Area.
St. Augustine Road Fish Management Area contains two fishing lakes that are operated jointly by the City of Jacksonville and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The larger lake drains into New Rose Creek, which connects directly to the St. Johns River. A hidden gem for nature lovers, it is usually empty of everyone except birds. Migrating birds and year-round residents love the lake and surrounding woodlands; the park is an eBird Hotspot where 90 species have been reported. Join us to clean up this beautiful area and help keep trash from harming the wildlife we love!
We'll supply bags, latex gloves, and grabbers - we just need YOU and your help! Please wear close-toed shoes or boots (for your safety, NO sandals or flip-flops) and clothes that can get dirty.
What to bring:
• A hat
• Sunscreen/bug spray
• Heavy-duty gloves if you have them, and
• a signed waiver form if you are under 18. You may download and bring your completed form with you to the cleanup.
See you there!
