Birding / Plant Walk at Eden Gardens State Park
Saturday, Feb. 13th at 8:00 AM
Join Bay County Audubon Society and Coastal Seniors of South Walton at Eden Gardens State Park. This is a combined birding/plant walk with members of the Sweetbay chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society. Meet at 8:00 – 8:15 a.m. in the main parking lot. Bring a picnic lunch and drinks, as well as your cameras and binoculars. This picturesque park is on the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. It is about 32 miles west of Panama City just off Hwy 98 on County Road 395. Turn right at the intersection and drive 1 mile to the park entrance. Please bring and wear a mask. Easy walking. The plan is to divide into two groups for those interested in birding or plant study.
Little Free Library
Coastal Seniors of South Walton, Inc. has received a Little Free Library which is located at our office at 70 Logan Lane, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 32459. It is outside our front door and allows seniors to access books and puzzles whenever they are able to come by our office location. We were able to purchase the Little Free Library with funds made available through the CARES grant which we received.
