February is American Heart Month!

There is a lot to love about The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail and February is the month to show it! It will do your heart good.

Saturday, February 25

Scrub-Jay breeding season is
fast approaching
Every year we help by pruning back the scrub oaks to an average height of 5-7 feet.  This is the ideal height in which the Florida Scrub-Jays like to make their nests. 
Things to bring to Saturday's Trailday, 8:30 am - 11:00 am, are gloves, hat, pruning shears, loppers, small saw (folding works well), refillable water bottle.
We have a limited supply of tools to share so don’t worry if you don’t have your own. 


Yoga is good for your heart!

The deep breathing and mental focus of yoga can help you offset stress, and it can help lower blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood glucose levels. 
Our blissful Sunrise Yoga starts at 7:00 a.m. and lets us enjoy the beauty of sunrise over the lake as we are led through calming, reflective poses that are suitable for any experience level. All you need to bring is your mat and your enthusiasm. (No charge)

While we consider every person who takes the time to come and visit the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail special, we recently had an extra-special guest from Kansas City, MO. That person was Dave Tanner.

When asked what brought him to Clermont, FL, he very humbly said he was playing in a Beatles tribute band, Liverpool Legends, at the Clermont Recreation Center, and he was “Paul.”
Wow! If anyone has the opportunity to see this band, it is a must for your “Life List”! To describe it as incredible is an understatement!

Minneola High School Band was included in the second act! Keep your eyes open for some major talent coming out of Minneola, FL.

Please consider opening your heart and becoming a Florida Scrub-Jay Trail member and contributing to our cause of protecting the Florida Scrub-Jay from extinction while supporting our children as they explore our great Florida outdoors.
