Event description

Description

The Circle B Bar Reserve Program Director, Tabitha Biehl, will be giving us a tour of the native plant demonstration gardens, answering our questions, and sharing the triumphs and challenges of their extensive land restoration projects. (Minimum suggested donation of $5 payable to Circle B Bar Reserve on the day of the event.)

Following our guided tour, we will be on our own for optional activities including viewing the indoor exhibits, exploring the trails, or enjoying a picnic lunch in one of the shaded picnic pavilions. ​

The Circle B Bar Reserve, on the northwest shore of Lake Hancock, is a former cattle ranch that today boasts a wide variety of plants and animals. You can see several distinct ecosystems in this reserve of only 1,267 acres. You're almost guaranteed to see alligators in Lake Hancock, often considered the headwaters of the Peace River, which flows more than 100 miles from Polk County southwest to the Gulf of Mexico. The Polk County Board of County Commissioners and the Southwest Florida Water Management District acquired Circle B Bar Reserve in December 2000, primarily to protect the valuable water and wildlife resources and to restore the Banana Creek marsh system.

We hope to see you there!
