TrailTracker.jpgWEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (June 3, 2019) – Grassy Waters Preserve of West Palm Beach offers more than 20-square miles of wetlands, home to 120 species of birds including Snail Kites, Glossy and White Ibises, Limpkins, Bald Eagles and more! Now, birders and ornithologists have another resource with which to observe and appreciate the Preserve’s birds: the e-Bird Trail Tracker Kiosk.
 
Located inside the Preserve’s Nature Center at 8264 Northlake Boulevard, the kiosk lets visitors:
  • Find bird sightings at the location;
  • View photos, audio, and life histories;
  • Record their own bird observations;
  • Get sightings at other locations;
  • View websites, cams, and area attractions.
 
Alternately, visitors to Grassy Waters Preserve, may download the e-Bird app, used by thousands of birders around the world, to their mobile device. The collected data helps researchers worldwide study bird populations, migration patterns, and the effects of climate change.
 
The e-Bird Trail Tracker Kiosk is made possible through the Grassy Waters Conservancy which received a grant from the IBIS Charities Foundation.
 
The most popular location for birding within Grassy Waters Preserve is the Cypress Boardwalk Trail. Based on availability, binoculars and wheelchairs are available upon request at the Nature Center at no charge. The hours of operation are Monday – Saturday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Sunday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
