Before and after our scheduled trips, take a leisurely walk through the Northlake Nature Center property via a clearly marked path from BirdFest headquarters. There are five miles of trails through our 400 acres, marked for self-guided tours. Habitats at the Nature Center site include a grove of giant southern magnolias, Cypress/gum swamp, and a beaver pond on Bayou Castine. You may see wood ducks, migrant warblers, and if you're lucky, our flock of over twenty wild turkeys! So, plan to take this pleasant walk.
