This program provided a wonderful introduction to the birds of Florida's natural world. The instructor knows her subject matter and just as importantly, how to motivate the participants to share her enthusiasm for the sights and sounds around us.

Phil - California; 2/2/14-2/7/14 This was my first Road Scholar Program and the first time I have birded in South Florida. Even though I have birded for decades I added 34 new species to my life list! It was not unusual to be within a few feet of a bird which made seeing details incredible. I enjoyed the company of the participants ... all were engaging and easy to get along with. Cindy and Liz were fabulous. Their contacts allowed for local birding experts to join us on 4 of the 5 days. Nothing negative to say about the whole experience. I plan to attend many more Road Scholar trips in the future.

Four new life birds - Wow! - and lots of old bird friends. Our leaders were knowledgeable, efficient, caring of the group, and fun to be with. I especially liked learning more about the everglades and cypress swamp ecosystems. The accommodations were very comfortable and included a sitting area, plus mini kitchenette. We were well fed with a pretty good breakfast at the hotel, great picnic lunch during the day, and restaurants at night. Porky's had great catfish and even Cracker Barrel had a good trout dinner.

The birding was great, and learning about SW Florida's swamp ecosystems was an unexpected plus.

Well organized and executed. The group leader and assistant were energetic, well-informed and caring human beings who obviously take pride in both their work and their contributions to the group's well being and program satisfaction. Thank you. Lois Haslam
