Come join CREW for a fun family walk in the woods - with activities that will get you dirty, inspire you, and engage all your senses - giving everyone a nice dose of Vitamin N (that is "Nature"). This is an active walk for the whole family to get involved and enjoy nature at its best.
Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle, describes time in nature as "Vitamin N". He writes about the importance of Vitamin N for families here.
Walk is limited to first 20 people who register. Children must be accompanied and supervised by their adult guardian during the walk. Tickets are per family, not per family member.
Please tell us the names and ages of all who will be attending, so we can plan appropriate activities for the group.
Registration ends April 4th. So sign up today :-)

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.
