Nature Hike on Little Talbot - Sept 24 reminder
Wednesday, September 21, 2011 8:18 PM
We have 28 people signed up so far and expect several more in the next two days. The ranger station says the hiking trail is a sandy soil so it is in good shape despite the rain. Hopefully the weather will cooperate, however, I plan to go even if we have a bit of rain on Saturday morning. Little Talbot is beautiful in all weather conditions and the weather changes every 15 minutes in Florida. Please feel free to call me on my cell phone if you have any questions. Thanks, (Mr) Kim Luffberry [masked]- cell)
Sep. 24, Saturday, 9:15 AM: NATURE HIKE ON LITTLE TALBOT ISLAND: Sleep in a bit and then lets enjoy a very pleasant four mile nature walk experiencing a cross-section of ecosystems on Little Talbot Island State Park. This includes maritime hammock, beach dunes, depression marsh, and a stroll on the beautiful white sandy beaches of the island. There should be a good opportunity to view wildlife and locate shells or sharks teeth. Bring water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, and a bright smile. Cost: Entry fee of $4.00 per vehicle (1 person) or $ 5.00 per vehicle (2 - 8 people) onto the island, plus lunch if you desire.
We will meet at Hardees on Merrill Rd. at 9:15 AM. Take 9A North or Southside Blvd Connector North and exit at Merrill Rd. Proceed East and Hardees is immediately on your left. We will car-pool and caravan approximately 20 miles to Little Talbot Island State Park off of Hecksher Blvd. If you live in north Jax or Ga. then suggest you meet us at the island at approx. 9:50 AM. If there is interest, we will probably have lunch at the nearby Sanddollar Restaurant that has good food and a wonderful water view. Please let me know you plan to come by either a phone call, e-mail, or sign up on our meetup.com site. http://www.floridastateparks.org/littletalbotisland/ Leader (Mr.) Kim L. [masked] (cell-[masked])
