The Great Florida Birding Trail
 allows ratings
The Great Florida Birding Trail (GFBT) is a program of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, supported in part by the Florida Department of Transportation and the Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
Expanded Description:
The GFBT is a 2000-mile highway trail which unifies a total of 446 existing and new birding sites throughout Florida. This ambitious project combines special highway signs identifying Birding Trail sites with detailed maps showcasing the wonderful birding opportunities in Florida. Each Trail section consists of a series of clusters, with each cluster containing 5-15 sites highlighting communities and special ecosystems like the Lake Wales Ridge.

Traditionally, only local birders knew about the great birding sites in their area. Most publicity went to the federal and state sites, such as J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Everglades National Park. The Great Florida Birding Trail aims to combine more prominent birding sites with smaller local sites in groups that will spread out casual birdwatchers into the surrounding communities.
