Tampa Bay Sierra Club General Meeting

Please note we have moved our monthly meetings to Unity of Tampa, 3302 W. Horatio, Tampa

Take a visual hike through a selection of Hillsborough County's nature preserves with Outings Chair Gail Parsons. Gail will give us a look at the diverse properties open for public enjoyment, some longtime favorites and others new or hidden gems! Her program takes us along on her Sierra Club outings, and provides factual information on the nature, wildlife and habitat found at each of these conservation properties.

You'll go kayaking in Cockroach Bay, and hiking along the banks of the Alafia River Corridor and Brooker Creek Headwaters Preserve. Check out the birds, gopher tortoises, wild turkeys and other critters at the Lower Hillsborough Wilderness. Many preserves are part of the county's Environmental Land Acquisition Program (ELAP).
