Naturalist Ed Northey will discuss the habits and vocalizations of Florida’s native subspecies of wild eastern turkey, the Osceola. Participants will learn a myriad of calls, then go on a hike into turkey habitat using these calls to entice a tom to respond. Hikers will also learn and use the calls of crows and owls while learning their role in the spring woods. Meet at 964 S. State Road 415, west of New Smyrna Beach.
