Return to the Roost--Hay Ride
November 14, 2015
“Return to the Roost” a hay ride type field trip at Orlando Wetlands Park (OWP) is a wonderful way to see the far reaches of this beautiful place. Even more exciting is a ride at sunset, in which you can watch wading birds “return to the roost.” As it darkens, alligator eyes shine, and night sounds will fill your senses.
This event on Saturday, November 14th, 4:30–6:30 PM, is a fund-raiser for Orange Audubon Society. Cost is $30 per person with 20 persons maximum. OWP is located at 25155 Wheeler Rd, Christmas, FL 32709.
