Field Trip Meetings
:  2nd Wednesday @ 7:30am (Nov-Mar) 

                                    Meet at the Community Center


The Pelican Landing Birdwatching Club meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:30am at the north side of the Community Center parking lot unless noted otherwise in the schedule. Meetings are field trips to a variety of habitats in the area. Carpools are arranged at the Community Center on the day of the field trip so participants should be prepared to drive or contribute toward gasoline. Those with pressing afternoon appointments will want to drive by themselves. Participants should bring a sack lunch, binoculars, field guides, insect repellent, and shoes and clothing suitable for each habitat. Most trips will end around 2pm. Comprehensive information concerning directions, entrance fees, and logistics for each field trip is sent to club members by email prior to the trip, so interested residents should register their email addresses and telephone numbers with Pat Gladstone. Pat can be reached at (239) 992-6968 or There are no dues for this resident club...just enthusiasm and curiosity about Florida's resident and migratory birds.
