Wildflower Preserve Interim Trails Now Open!

December 18, 2016

General, News, Wildflower Preserve

At Wildflower Preserve, we are currently at a “lull” in our major habitat restoration project while we await wf-new-interim-trails-dec2016-webpermitting and bidding of the wetlands restoration project phase.

To allow Lemon Bay Conservancy members to access the Preserve during the project “lull”, our volunteer trail clearing team has marked an interim set of trails for use during the winter season.  Access to the preserve and to the trails is now open daily to Lemon Bay Conservancy members and their guests. Public access is limited to scheduled nature walks and events.

Trail conditions are rough, especially in areas that were cleared recently as part of the uplands habitat restoration activities. Hiking boots are suggested and visitors should exercise caution on the trail network. All visitors to Wildflower Preserve do so at your own risk!

The interim trail network will remain open until the next phase of the restoration project begins, which is currently expected in late March 2017.
