Oscar Scherer Adventure!

When you arrive at the Park, there is an entrance fee of $4.00, or you can make your own carpooling arrangements at $6.00 a car. Drive to the Nature Center, at the end of the park road, to meet Joyce Leary who will lead the walk.

This is an opportunity to get to know the "wild side" of Florida. Today, Joyce will lead us on the Green Trail ...this trail is a combination of hard-packed grass and loose sand that covers 3 miles. We'll pass an eagle's nest, but the juvenile eaglets fledged in February, so we may see them in the area. We may see the Great Horned Owl near it's nest...plus other birds, including the Florida Scrub Jay. Bring binoculars, if you have them.

This trail is in full sun (sunscreen & hat). Bring water.

    It was a beautiful day and Joyce was a very knowledgeable, and personable friendly guide, who made everyone feel welcome. Thank you Joyce for making this a memorable occasion. I enjoyed meeting new people and talking with those I already knew from past meetups. Great event.

    fun group but set a fast pace and Noir was pulling because he wanted to lead.. we skipped part of both loops but I sure got enough exercise...when we stopped for the photo I had put my walking stick down and apparently walked away without it. fortunately I stopped to see a house for sale on the next road over and realized it was gone.. very upsetting but roared back and happily it was still there...then Noir and I had dinner in venice. sherry

    What a lovely day it turned out to be! We arrived as the band was setting up, grilled out, listened to music, walked (albeit not with the group but we did see them & said hi) made s'mores and relaxed. Great park, lots of trails and it connects to the Legacy Trail.

    The group was the absolute BEST...energetic & fun. We walked until they said they had enough : ) (even everyone who RSVPd showed up). I'd like all my birding groups to be as lovely as this group was today.

    I better pass on this walk. I twisted my ankle last week and it is not healing as fast as I had hoped. Bummer.

    I'm not on the wait list either but we are going anyway, making a day of it, picnic, swim in the lake, biking on the trail, walk with the group, etc.

    The volunteer host requested a size limit. If you would Luke to host an event let me know. If you have changed your plans and no longer plan to attend please cancel on the site so those who are waiting can attend.

    March 12, 2013

    • Cathy

      Thanks for explaining. I thought that it was the park that requested a limit of attendees and was a little confused.

    I am just curious? Since this is a public park? Why would the public be limited to 14 people?
    Hopefully? this message? question is not inappropriate?
    I would think they welcome as many as would care to visit?
    Inquiring minds, want to know.

    • Cathy

      Hi Carl, I have that same question. It's a huge park and I don't understand why there needs to be a limit on amount of people attending.

    ask were the nature center is at the entrance booth.

    March 11, 2013

  • Julie Bushey T.

    Sorry, now I can't make it - hope some of the people in waiting get to go

    March 11, 2013

  • Cathy

    I would like to be included in the walk at Oscar Scherer Park. didn't realize there would be a waitlist for this event.

    Where are you all meeting? Is it at the entrance?

    March 11, 2013

    • Judy B.

      Hi Thomas. In the description above, it says to meet at the Nature Center at the end of the Park Rd.
