Description

Join our CREW Trust's volunteer naturalists on an interpretive walk at our recently opened trail system! Flint Pen Strand is a unique part of the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW) and these new trails will take guests along the Kehl Canal and through various habitats. Wildlife sightings include deer, swallow-tailed kites and wading birds.


Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and appropriate outdoor clothing. Bring water to drink. Sunscreen and a hat are advisable. Cameras and binoculars are optional.


Limited to 20 hikers.
