The Sheldon Lake State Park & Environmental Learning Center is situated on the central migration flyway where many different species of bird can be spotted while migrating north and south, making it a great location to observe migratory birds. Fall migration is a spectacle on the gulf coast and you can find thousands of birds of prey returning south for the winter. Join the Park’s crew as they collect data to learn more about the variety of raptors who use this flyway and the health of their populations.
Meet at the Pond Center Pavilion, the first building on your left off of the Park Road. Be sure to bring binoculars, or ask to borrow a pair!
