Helpful Tips for this event:

-this is a free event

-all ages welcome

please bring water

-protect your skin: wear/bring insect repellant & sunscreen, if you wish

-protect your head: wear a hat, sunhat, bandana or a face-mask “Buff” if you wish

-1-hour walk/hike: this swamp walk will not be fast and you will probably not cover a great deal of terrain. Remember, even if you don’t cover a lot of ground, you can still enjoy your swamp walk by taking the scenery in great detail. Notice the sights, smells, and sounds around you as you move slowly through a swamp. Bring your walking stick if you have one!

-wear closed-toe “old” shoes, waterproof  hiking boots or rubber boots

-comfortable “outdoor” clothing  (cotton shirt, breathable, synthetic items) to prevent overheating

-bring gloves if you wish

-please RSVP (727) 376-5111
