  • Bull Creek Fall Maintenance Day 1 (Friday - 10/25)

    Each year there is one weekend (10/25-10/27) in the fall when the deer hunting is on hold in Bull Creek. We use this weekend to get as much trail maintenance done as possible. Some of us will be camping at the Bull Creek hunters campground while others will drive in for the day. Some of our hunting friends have trailers, covered areas, trucks, etc., which make us more comfortable and more productive. There is no charge for camping. If you have a camper you are welcome to bring it but there are no hookups. There will be a lot of mowing, lopping, and possibly some clearing of blow down depending on how many hurricanes we have. You are welcome to come out for a few hours or all three days. We are going to do this one as a state event so we will be getting some food from the trail association. If you want to be the camp cook please feel welcome to come out and help feed us. When doing maintenance, please wear long pants, hard hats, glasses, and gloves. If you are camping you will need to bring typical camping gear. Some people like to use bug repellant. Details will soon be posted on the state Florida Trail website. If you have questions, please contact me,[masked] or at [masked].

  • Prairie Lakes Trail Maintenance Day 1 (Friday 11/8)

    We will do trail maintenance in the Prairie Lakes Wild Life Management Area. This area has a very nice group camping site. The likely goal will be to run the mowers around the 4 loops at Prairie Lakes and do lopping as required. If there are hurricanes prior to this date we will probably be clearing some blow down. You are welcome to camp out or to participate on a day basis for whatever time you desire. This will be a state sponsored trip so FTA will be providing food. Further details will be posted on the FTA website at a later date. For maintenance you need to wear a hard hat, glasses, and gloves. You can bring you own or FTA will provide. Please have long pants to wear while you are working. Also you need to wear closed shoes (no sandals, flip flops, etc.)
