We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Fun 4 First Coast Kids on their free summer long Family Nature Hunt series. While most of the hikes will be self guided, this one allows you to follow along with a naturalist/biologist to learn about the beautiful Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens (http://www.jacksonvillearboretum.org). This property is a 120-acre urban woodland full of trails for you to explore and enjoy. Our expert will lead us on a family friendly hike while sharing plenty of educational information perfect for children of all ages. After the guided hike, you will have the opportunity to join us as we explore a different trail following the clues provided by Fun 4 First Coast Kids. Solve the question, submit your answer online at http://www.fun4firstcoastkids.com and you’ll receive a coupon for a cool prize!
The hike will begin at the information kiosk at the far end of the parking lot. This is also the start of the Lake Loop Trail. A handicapped accessible unisex restroom and water fountain are located at the parking area.
To maximize your enjoyment, we suggest the following:
• Appropriate hiking shoes
• Trail snacks
• Insect repellent
See you outside!
