Ask anyone if you need assistance to achieve this task.






  SARASOTA TOY MUSEUM aims to open in August. We will go there as a field trip. On FaceBook, look up SARASOTA TOY MUSEUM for photos and videos as it prepares to open. A miniature train layout is in the back. It was moved from Vermont, put together and the trains are running.


Cheers, Bryan

Manatee Audubon – birding stroll - free

Wednesday July 31 at 7:00 am

700 River Heritage Park, Bradenton 34212. The location is East of I-75 and North of SR 64.

Go birding with Billie & Jerry Knight (former Suncoast Camera Club members) at Heritage Harbour Park (meet in the parking lot by the playground)

Explore this 1.5-mile loop trail in Bradenton, Florida. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 26 min to complete. This is a well-maintained paved trail around a nice lake and park. There are lots of birds that you can find on your walk around the lake in the mature trees.

Heritage Harbour Park is a hotspot on eBird boasting 145 species recorded

(link to checklist)

Following a guided bird walk join your birding buddies for breakfast to chat about what you saw and compare your lists.

Breakfast: Cracker Barrel

636 – 67th Street Circle East, Bradenton

The bird walk is Free to all and breakfast is a buy your own meal.


Give YOUR field trip suggestions to Bryan or better yet, lead us on a field trip. I try to keep them close to home and free. Evidence shows this to be the best way to gain attendance. A few members have the desire to drive more than 10 miles and perhaps pay an admission fee.
