ATTENTION ALL EXPERIENCED EQUESTRIANS
Let's celebrate CREW'S 25th Anniversary on horseback! The Crew Trust, in cooperation with the SFWMD and local saddle club members, is offering area trail riders a first-ever Equestrian Event. The location will be the Bird Rookery Swamp Tram Loop via Flint Pen Strand. The ride will be guided by members of the Caloosa Saddle Club and is limited to 25 horses. It will be a long ride, approximately 15 miles in length. Riders and horses must be in good condition.
ALL RIDERS MUST PRE-REGISTER. Register here today.
You must provide your own horse. Current Coggins papers are required to ride and will be checked at the entrance gate which will open at 8:30 AM. Ride out at 9:30 AM. Liability waivers must be signed at the entrance gate.
Bring your own food and drinks for snacks and lunch. There are no facilities on the trail. Don't forget your camera! The tram trail is canopied and is located in a maple-cypress stand with lush vegetation and wildlife galore.
A shorter ride option will be available (approximately 2.5 to 3 hours, with 1/2-hr ride on the BRS tram trail). Contact Lynda Rehse at the number below for more details. Registration is required, whether you choose the longer or the shorter ride.
DIRECTIONS to starting place will be sent to you upon registration.

When & Where
CREW Land & Water Trust
The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation. CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
