Saturday Guided Hikes at the Oxbow Eco-Center

Every Saturday November 2016 – April 2017,  9am-10am

 

The weather is gorgeous and there’s no better time to get outside and relish the fresh air and pine-scented forest of the Oxbow Eco-Center. 

With 225 acres located adjacent to the North Fork of the St. Lucie River, there is a lot to discover at the Oxbow.  Join us Saturday mornings from 9am to 10am for a free guided hike and learn about the interplay of plants and animals that exists in some of Florida’s natural habitats.   Whether you just want to get some exercise in the serene setting of the natural world or you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of foraging wildlife and seasonal blossoms, this is an excellent opportunity to enjoy one of St. Lucie County’s most treasured natural resources.   

The hikes are free and appropriate for ages 5 and up.   Feel free to bring binoculars or a camera and we highly suggest a hat, closed-toe shoes, and a refillable water bottle.

Located at 5400 NE St. James Drive in Port St. Lucie, the Oxbow Eco-Center is a St. Lucie County Environmental Learning Center. For more information visit www.oxboweco.com
