Enjoy a late afternoon walk in this county preserve, one of the larger tracts of pine rockland remaining outside of Everglades National Park. We will be led by Steve Woodmansee, biologist and owner of Pro Native Consulting. We'll see summer wildflowers and hopefully some butterflies and birds. The Miami Blue Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association will join us. We might see Bartram's Hairstreak, Florida Duskywing, Cloudless and Little Yellow Sulphurs, plus common butterflies.

Time, address and directions are in the newsletter mailed to members. Please join to enjoy all the activities of the chapter!

  • Difficulty: Moderate (some rocky, off-path terrain, not long distances)
