Hello Suncoast Chapter,
Here is a nice upcoming family friendly event...... Spread the word.... sounds like a good opp to introduce kids and parents to the outdoors.
This is not an official Suncoast FTA event. It is sponsored by the park and Friends of Little Manatee. However we partner with LMRSP and help maintain their beautiful 6.5 mile orange blazed loop trail.
There is no need to RSVP as this is a public event. We will have an FTA informational booth staffed by FTA volunteers.
