Tomorrow from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM join a group of hikers to explore the Cypress Creek Natural Area. This hike will be a moderate pace and will go from thick woods to open prairies.
You will stop several times along the way to rest and view some of the local wildlife. Leader determines the pace, route, number of stops, and duration of stops. A walking stick would be helpful. Bring water and a snack. This natural area contains seven native Florida ecosystems: mesic flatwoods, wet flatwoods, hydric hammock, wet prairie, depression marsh, dome swamp, and blackwater stream.
