Camp Blanding is 56,197 acres located in western Clay County, east of Starke. The northern half of the area is planted pine plantations with remnant mature pines that support red-cockaded woodpeckers. Bottomland hardwood forests occur along the headwaters of Black Creek. The southern half of the area includes several thousand acres of sand hills, with plentiful white-tailed deer and turkey.

Birds we will look for: Red-headed Woodpecker, Red-Cockaded Woodpecker, Kestrel, Sandhill Cranes, migratory ducks, and warblers. In addition to birds, the biologist promises to help locate unusual wildflowers! It promises to be a very special field trip.

Bring binoculars, drinks, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, sturdy walking shoes, and a hat if desired.
