Ridgeview High School Environmental Club at Crosby Sanctuary
Students from the newly-formed Environmental Club at Ridgeview High School in Orange Park have been volunteering their time to help out at Crosby Sanctuary! More than 25 students came to our Crosby Saturday Bird Walk and Work Day in September (always held the fourth Saturday each month from September thru May unless otherwise noted) and helped with trail maintenance, weeding, and trash pickup. Many of the students returned for the October Crosby Saturday and helped with similar tasks, and several joined us for our bird walk before the work day and enjoyed beautiful weather, a lovely nature walk and some great birds! We spotted a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, a Worm-eating Warbler, two Northern Waterthrushes, and many Eastern Phoebes.
We truly appreciate the help from these hardworking and enthusiastic young leaders, and look forward to working with them again in November!
Please join us for our next Crosby Saturday Bird Walk and Work Day on Saturday, November 24, 2018. The bird walk starts at 8 am and we'll start our work projects around 9:30 am. Even if you cannot stay for the work day, please join us for birding - you won't regret it!
