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 and November Crosby Saturdays 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!
Our next Crosby Saturday will be held on January 26, 2019. 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!
