Love in the Wild - A Plant & Animal Romance Hike
Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EST)
What’s love got to do with it? In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’ll hike the CREW Cypress Dome Trails and explore the many ways plants and animals attract each other and keep their species going. This hike is for adults curious about plant and animal adaptations which enhance their abilities to find mates and reproduce.
The Cypress Dome Trails provide 6 miles of pine flatwoods, cypress domes, and popash slough to explore. We'll hike approxiately three miles on this hike. The hike is free, but donations to the CREW Trust are greatly appreciated.
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.
