About the event

Southwest Florida Water Management District maintains this 609 acre park with 5 miles of trails, well known by the locals for having good scrub habitat for the area. Several Florida scrub-jay families reside within the property along with Gopher Tortoises. The mesic flatwoods and tidal marsh system provide a unique natural habitat with a man-made excavated pond located in northern portion of property. The park is adjacent to Shell Creek, Peace River and Hunter Creek. We commend bug spray, sunscreen and water.
