Dec 02 9:00AM - 10:30AM

Discover the shady hammocks, pine flatwoods and forested wetlands of Brooker Creek Preserve, where you will learn how the natural communities of the Preserve are connected in much the same way as human communities. We will explore our connections to the natural areas near us, and learn the possible impacts we have on one another.

All ages are welcome. Children under the ages of 16 must be accompanied by an adult and those younger than 6 may find this hike challenging.
