As we grow our community, we regularly host events and programs on the Preserve and in the Welcome Center. From our monthly Talk & Tours and walking meditations to Audubon bird outings and invasive weed cleanup parties. We also host and facilitate the West Pasco Death Cafe.

Check our Calendar for an updated listing of all our events.

We invite you to become a part of our community of families and friends who enjoy the Preserve. Sign-up below for Heartwood’s monthly email invites (and our Newsletter, coming soon!) and stay updated on monthly events:
