SPRING BIRDING (7:30 am - 10:30am)

From Calendar: ACT Events & Activities

Location: Santa Fe River Preserve

Details:


WHAT
Getting started with birdsong can seem like a challenge, but once you learn the more common and distinctive songs, you will have a foundation that is easy to expand upon. We will spend the morning listening and watching as many birds as we can find in a few hours, and with nesting and migration in full swing, we should have a good chance of finding many different species.

Birds we should see include: Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Eastern Bluebird, Downy Woodpecker, Eastern Towhee, White-eyed Vireo, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-throated Vireo, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Pileated Woodpecker, Palm Warbler, Carolina Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, and hopefully much more.

Walk led by Ivor Kincaide and Chris Burney.

WHAT TO BRING
Binoculars and bird book extremely helpful. Long pants and boots/closed shoes are highly recommended (trails may be damp in places).

TREE FEST 2017 (12:00 pm - 11:00pm)

From Calendar: ACT Events & Activities

Location: Swamp Head Brewery

Details:

WHAT
Solar Impact and Swamp Head Brewery are teaming up again for Tree Fest, an annual event hosted at Swamp Head Brewery around Earth Day and Arbor Day. Tree Fest is a unique event with a simple purpose: raise money to plant trees in Alachua County.

How it works:
5 trees will be planted for every beer purchased during the event, and 20 trees for every Tree Fest T-Shirt bought, and all sponsor donations will go towards additional plantings. The trees are native year-old longleaf pines and will be planted by Alachua Conservation Trust at the Little Orange Creek Preserve near Hawthorne, Florida. Longleaf pines once dominated the landscape in Florida, and these forests are gradually being restored through community efforts like this.

Tree Fest is free to attend! The event features food trucks, family-friendly activities, and of course, Swamp Head beer. From 1:00pm - 5:00pm, Bouncin’ Big will have free bounce houses for kids, and several community partners will be tabling and offering some activites. At 5pm, live music starts and continues for the rest of the event.
