Event Details

        HIKE SUMTER

                                "See the REAL Florida!"

 

The "wildly" popular Hike Sumter "See the REAL Florida" program will be hiking Dade Battlefield Historic State Park on Friday, November 22.  We will meet at the Lodge at Dade Battlefield at 8:30 a.m. for registration. 

We are pleased that Arthur Clothier, Sumter County Forester, will be accompanying us and Kristin Wood of Dade Battlefield.  You'll be learning about Florida's natural resources including native plants, invasive plants, insects, wildlife, trees, etc. as well as enjoying the great weather, scenery and history of this beautiful State park.  Dade Battlefield is the site of the battle that started the Second Seminole War in December 1835.

Please dress appropriately for hiking: no open-toe shoes, bring sunscreen, insect repellant, and binoculars.  Bring your camera so you can “shoot” any wildlife we may encounter.  Insect repellant is a must because there are ticks and chiggers in the areas we will hike.  There is a $3 park entry fee per car.

Bring a snack and beverages in a cooler. Following the hike we’ll gather at the pavillion and have a question and answer session.

The hikes fill up quickly and space is limited; so register right away.   This event promises to be educational and a lot of fun; we hope you will join us. If you have any questions, please email plantclinic@aol.com or call 352-793-2728, Ext. 229.
