A SWIFT NIGHT OUT AT WAKULLA SPRINGS
Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park

Date: Saturday, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Description:

The Department of Environmental Protection’s Wakulla Springs State Park invites you to a Nature's Amazing Spectacle. During Swift Night Out, people all over the country stand beneath chimneys to watch and count chimney swifts enter their roost. The Lodge at Wakulla Springs has a large flock that roosts in one of its inactive chimneys. Come to witness the flying cigar shaped birds perform their swirling aerial dance prior to their descent into the chimney and be part of a nationwide program to estimate their numbers. Enjoy this unusual ranger-led program to see firsthand one of nature’s amazing spectacles. Please call (850) 561-7286 to let us know you are planning to attend.
