Join us March 19th as we tour the Wakodahatchee Wetlands and Green Cay.  We will be meet at the Wakodahatchee at 7am, just before sunrise (the sun rises at 7:25am) and before the birds begin their morning search for food.  We'll go to Green Cay some time in between, possibly. And we will stay until about noon. Be sure to bring water, bug spray, a hat, sunglasses, and snacks if you like.  Suggested camera equipment: camera (obviously), tripod, lenses:  long lenses are a plus since we'll be photographing birds.

The Wakodahatchee Wetlands are located near Delray Beach, east of Jog Road, between Woolbright Road and Atlantic Avenue (Exit 95 onto Atlantic Avenue West; continue to Jog Road; turn right; park is on the right). The site is on the southeast side of Palm Beach County Water Utility Department's Southern Region Operations Center at 13026 Jog Road, Delray Beach. Click here for map.
