Explore Volusia: Turkey talk

Event Date(s)

Naturalist Ed Northey will discuss the habits and vocalizations of our native subspecies of wild eastern turkey, the Osceola. Participants will learn a myriad of calls, then hike into turkey habitat using these calls to entice a tom to respond. They will also learn and use the calls of crows and owls while exploring their role in the spring woods. Meet at Wiregrass Prairie Preserve, 1751 Lopez Road, Osteen. The site is off Rudman Road. Do not use GPS.
