Join us Friday after the Academy for more exploration of some of Florida’s hidden treasures, including an afternoon being dazzled by the white sands and emerald waters of the Gulf coast. Our tour will include:
  • Eglin Air Force Base: Take a guided tour with Eglin’s biologists to learn about the incredible conservation work ongoing at this site. The tour will highlight successful initiatives to protect red-cockaded woodpeckers, gopher tortoises, and the endangered Okaloosa darter, as well as delving into the strategies and practices for maintaining the unique fire-dependent longleaf pine ecosystem.
  • Gulf Islands National Seashore: This site is no secret to birders, and its diverse habitats shelter a huge diversity of species. Add unspoiled white sand beaches and intact coastal dune habitat and you get a place that can’t be missed. Enjoy a brief guided walk before exploring the seashore and historic Fort Pickens.

Transportation, lunch, and snacks included in price of this field trip. Partners and spouses are invited to register for the post-Academy field trip.
