POSTED: 02/16/12 1:31 PM

St. Maarten – Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) St. Maarten hosts a free public bird walk this Saturday at Salines d’Orient by Le Galion. The trek will start at 9:00 a.m. near the Butterfly Farm and people should bring along spotting scopes, binoculars, and bird identification guides if they have them. Those who don’t have any will be able to get some before the tour starts. Saturday’s bird watching is for people who are curious about birds and other wildlife around Le Galion.
“Many species spend their winters on the island, resulting in impressive flocks of waterbirds at local ponds. The birds will soon begin departing for their breeding grounds in The United States and Canada. This is a great opportunity to see and learn about the true snowbirds before they head north while enjoying the beauty of the Reserve Naturelle St. Martin,” a release from Epic stated.
People who have questions should Ronald Pieters at 520-8538 for more information.
