Details

This is a date change!

SWFWMD burned large sections of Green Swamp East this year and we are anticipating good late fall wildflowers.

Meet at the Rock Ridge entrance to Green Swamp East at 9:00 am. We will either walk in from the gate or drive in, leader's choice. Anticipate a 2-3 mile walk, so bring water and wear comfortable shoes.

Directions:

I-4 to US 98, N on US 98 to Rock Ridge, E on Rock Ridge. Avoid a turn onto Deen Still and stay straight on Rock Ridge which becomes a smaller road. The Rock Ridge entrance is on the left.

It is archery season, so there are hunters present. However, it is reasonably safe for us to visit since the number of archers is typically low and they usually get close enough to their targets to know that they are not human. If you own florescent orange, wear it.
