What we're about
Upcoming events (5)
Meet at 8:15 a.m. Join us for a 2 plus hour hike (up to 4 miles) as we cover the less travelled northern trail. The attached photo was taken on my last hike there. If our timing is good we'll see families of gators in the canal. Our pace will be moderate and we'll also walk the Cypress dome boardwalk. Restrooms are on the premises. Bring sun protection and a drink. After the hike, those interested can stop at nearby Bedner's Farm Fresh Market to view and/or purchase local grown produce.

Walk through these scrub and scrubby flatwoods natural areas in Boynton Beach. 7:30 a.m. we start walking so arrive early enough to sign in and get ready by then. The walk will begin at Seacrest Scrub and then you will caravan to High Ridge for a second exploration! But be prepared for some Florida elevation change as you climb the ridge!
Sorry but dogs are not allowed on our events.
