Event description
Guided walk with CREW Trust through our newest trail system, Flint Pen Strand.

About this Event

Join our CREW Trust volunteers on an interpretive walk through Flint Pen Strand, a unique part of the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW). Your guide will show you around the Kehl Canal, headwaters of the Imperial River and through various habitats that are undergoing habitat restoration. Wildlife sightings include white-tailed deer, swallow-tailed kites and wading birds.

Hikes will cover around 1.5 miles of uneven ground from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.. Please join a little early, if possible, between 8:45 and 9:00 so that everyone is set for a 9:00 start.

Requirements for Participants:

*Wearing a face covering and social distancing is required while participating in CREW Trust Programs.* If you choose not to wear a face covering while on a CREW Trust program, you will be asked to leave the group and hike the trails on your own.

As requirements change we will update you via email.
