You’re invited to capture an in-person bird count this week at Buck Lake and Lake Monroe conservation areas

Nearly three dozen volunteers are expected to scan the skies for rare Florida scrub jays at two St. Johns River Water Management District properties during the annual statewide Jay Watch survey from Friday through Sunday, July 8-10. Media are invited out Friday and will have access to the property and wildlife experts who will be ready to share why this activity is important to Florida’s scrub jay community. [July 6, 2016]
