Anhinga Trail and Sunset (Field Trip)

  • 40001 State Hwy 9336 Homestead, FL, 33034 United States (map)

We are excited to announce our November ‘Anhinga Trail and Sunset’ Field Trip.  We will be heading to the Everglades National Park on Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The meet up location is the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center.  Please arrive  at the visitor center by 3:00 pm.

At the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center, we will be discussing possible subjects, providing photography tips and briefing you on safety in the park.  We will start off at the Anhinga Trail then move down towards Pine Glades Lake to capture the sunset.  The sky will be dark that night due to the new moon, so there will be an opportunity for those wishing to stay to photograph the stars.

Here are some suggestions for items to bring:

  • Water

  • Snacks

  • Bug Spray

  • Sunscreen

  • Hat

Here is driving directions to the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center, 40001 State Road 9336, Homestead, FL 33034.
