Lemon Bay Conservancy is pleased to announce a wide-ranging schedule of free public nature outings for the Fall 2014 – Winter 2015 season. The outings will be led by our outstanding volunteer guides, including Dr. Bill Dunson, Dave Clayton, Bob Cooper, Margaret Dunson, Jane Wallace, Dr. Bruce Dayton, and Dr. Fred Santana.
This season’s outings include a variety of walks at Lemon Bay Conservancy’s Wildflower Preserve with topics including “Birds, Bugs and Blooms,” “Edible and Medicinal Plants,” Tarpon & Estuarine Creek Ecology,” “Plants and Animals: A Love Hate Relationship,” “Insects of Wildflower” and “Ecology of Wildflower Preserve.”
Beyond Wildflower, the Conservancy has joined with local environmental groups to co-sponsor nature outings at other locations including Stump Pass State Park, Myakka River State Park, Amberjack Environmental Preserve, and Buck Creek Preserve.
The season will begin on November 14 when Dr. Bill Dunson leads a Beach Ecology walk at Stump Pass State Park.
In addition to the nature walks, for the first time this year, volunteer Lucia Schatteleyn will be leading a series of exercise Pole Walks at Wildlfower Preserve from 8:00 – 9:00 am on Friday mornings. Pole walking uses upper as well as lower muscles and is a total body workout. Fitness walkers without poles may also join these sessions.
