Free guided tours of The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail
Saturday, October 5, from 8:00-10:00 am, the public is invited to a free guided tour at the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail in Clermont.

In this 2 hour tour, you will learn about the status of the Florida scrub-jay and its habitat; walk the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail; observe a family of resident jays; learn about the native plants of the Florida Scrub and proper planting techniques; plant trees and shrubs on the Trail, and learn how to contribute to the preservation of the species on their own property.

This tour is part of the overall citizen effort by the Florida Scrub-Jay Consortium to save the federally threatened Florida scrub-jay, Florida's only endemic bird species, meaning it only lives in Florida. Florida is home to many scrub-jays.

The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail identifies scrub-jay habitat across the state of Florida to increase the scrub-jay's territory. Landowners who have spotted scrub-jays on their properties are encouraged to contact the Florida Scrub-Jay Consortium to find out how to become a part of the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail.

Reservations for the stewardship program are suggested to assure a spot.
