Guided Walks Greater Sarasota will concentrate on guided historical walks as well as guided scenic & nature walks. This group is not an exercise group, although some of the distances may reach three miles in length (or more) and the time for the walks may be up to three hours (or more), but a social walking group. We stop to smell the roses.
The group welcomes those, new to the area or not, who want to learn more about Sarasota and Manatee counties, their histories (Palmer, Burns, Ringling, Gillespie, Edwards, Caples, DeSoto, and more), flora and fauna (state parks, county preserves, beaches and parks). Look at the planned walks and see if they appeal to you.
There is no cost to join this group and most walks are free. Some locations require an entrance and/or activity fee (ex. state parks) otherwise all walks would be free.
The group also welcomes those that would like to be guides for some of our walks or just like to share their knowledge of the area.
This is not a dating group and those seeking that should join the singles dating meetups. I reserve the right to ban any who may demonstrate unbecoming behavior.
Both Sarasota and Manatee counties have allowed their staff (naturalists and historians) to guide some of these walks. Both also have their own programs to promote the area. The state may also provide state rangers to guide us through their parks.
I ask that you attend at least one event within a six month period or else your membership will expire. If your membership expires due to non-attendance you will be able to re-join when you are ready.
Disclosure: I do not solicit nor do I take any tips, gifts, gratuities, or payment of any kind. I do not plan to have any sponsors or any advertising from any company. I do not know or have any relationships with the owners/managers of any place or restaurant that we may go to.
I welcome your input.
