    Tree Hill - what a little gem of a place! Our tour guide, Brian was very knowledgeable and informative. He kept a slow pace, just what was needed to get back into nature. I loved the butterfly garden. It was nice to meet everyone - I'm ready for more hiking now.

    If anyone is active on Trip Advisor, you might want to put it out there. Mark did a great narration. Highly appropriate as an attraction that locals and out of town visitors would want to see. Of course, great for kids.

    This was a naturalist guided slow-paced easy educational nature walk and visit to explore the center's exhibits. The group were several children who seemed to be enjoying the outing too. Dr. VJ introduced us to the center's unusual water pump cooling system which utilizes the Hawthorne Aquifer rather than the Florida Aquifer.

    Sableh,
    The outing will probably be over by 12. 30 p.m. You could pack a lunch if you want to as there are picnic tables at Tree Hill.
