Feb. 18 -- Secrets of the Woods Walk
Do you know what animals live in scrub? Can you distinguish a sandhill from flatwoods? Well come on out & get your Florida on! Join us Feb. 18th, 9 a.m. to noon at Rock Springs Run State Reserve for a walk with our ecology expert who will dazzle you with up-close experiences in Florida habitats. You'll view scrub, sandhill, flatwoods and wetlands habitats and learn about each of these communities' plants, animals, soils, waters and fire needs. Cost is $25 and space is filling first come, first served. You'll walk a mile or two so wear shoes that are comfortable for hiking; bring water, a hat and sunscreen, and wear appropriate clothes for traversing through some potentially dense habitat. Exciting eh? We'll mee...t at the entrance to the Reserve. (For those of you who haven’t been there, this is not where Rock Springs is.) The entrance is south of SR 46, a little less than 2.5 miles west of the Wekiva River and 0.2 mile east of the traffic light at SR 46A. Google maps says: 30601 County Road 433, Sorrento, FL 32776. For questions and to reserve your spot, email FriendsWekivaRiver@gmail.c
