EARTH DAY HIKE
AT HILOCHEE WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA
APRIL 22, 2016 10:00AM
Allison Jones, with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, a past NWF Habitat Steward participant at the Scrub-jay Trail, offers a wonderful way to celebrate Earth Day.
On Friday, April 22, 2016, join a Allison Jones and Mike Blondin, area biologist at Hilochee Wildlife Management Area (WMA), for a hike to discover new trail opportunities adjacent to Lake Louisa State Park.
At the WMA, located south of Clermont on US Highway 27, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has developed a new trail system that links to the state park. The 4.0 mile hike will explore one loop trail that passes several lakes and ponds and provides an introduction to the habitats, management, and plants and animals of the WMA. Enjoy birding opportunities at several points along the trail.
Parts of the hike will be in full sun. Bring water, binoculars, sunscreen, hats, insect repellent, and comfortable shoes. No restroom facilities are available. Meet at 10 am at the Riddick Grove Road entrance to the WMA, located off of U.S. 27, approximately 12 miles south of Clermont.
