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. 

Little Manatee River State Park

Date: Saturday, April 12 2014. 9 A.M. to 4 P.M.


Located at the park’s picnic area. This eco-friendly family event includes a little something for all of our park guests to do. For the kids we will have fun activities located near the playground including fish printing, face painting, a coloring contest and more. For guests of all ages we will have a ranger led guided hike, guided horse-back rides, live music, eco-friendly vendors and more. Food will be available by the Friends of Little Manatee River for a small donation. Bring your water bottle and get free water refills throughout the day’s event.

Fees: Vehicle Entry Fee applies ($5.00 per vehicle 2-8 people and $4.00 single occupant vehicle)

    Does anyone know when the hike is scheduled? The website only said that there would be one as part of other activities. I assume it will be sometime in the morning.

    I have a eye recovery office visit on Friday, but anticipate good news so I'll plan on coming and helping. What time would you like me there? Afternoon would work better for me, but could come in morning if needed.
