Naturalist Tour

of Spoonbill Pond

Join board member Ron Pfeffer, on the first Saturday of each month from 8:30-11:30 a.m., for a guided tour of Spoonbill Pond. Ron is also a North Florida Land Trust volunteer our co-sponsor for this tour series!

Spoonbill Pond, on the northeast end of Big Talbot Island is one of the best locations in the region for birdwatching, with over 200 species recorded. Birders and nature lovers of all experience levels welcome. We'll also discuss the role of NFLT in conserving Big Talbot Island and its importance for birds and other wildlife, as well as our mission as the Friends of TISP to support the state parks through outreach, volunteerism and more.

We will meet at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp parking lot, at the north end of the island. Parking is $2 per vehicle and cash only. Please dress appropriately and bring water, sunscreen, insect repellent and binoculars. 


Board meetings are open to the public.
