Explore Corkscrew's Pine Flatwoods

As responsible members of our communities, Audubon has cancelled all public programs provided by our nature centers, community naturalists, and other outreach staff through April 30th. We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but it is far more important that we participate and encourage social distancing best practices and not be encouraging public gatherings. Please stay apprised of our latest updates and responses to the COVID-19 situation here on our website. In the future: A special guided walk that will bring you off of the boardwalk to learn about and see our pine flatwoods - up close!

Join us on this special guided walk to explore the Pine Flatwoods and learn about the natural processes that maintain it, and about the plants and wildlife found in this beautiful and sometimes underappreciated habitat.  Special emphasis will be on the value of protecting this dry to short hydroperiod habitat and associated plants for wildlife and people.  We will be walking about 1 to 1.5 miles, mostly on a trail, but on some uneven ground, so bring sturdy walking shoes that you do not mind potentially getting a little dirty,  The areas we will be walking in at most times of the year should be dry (no standing water).   Long pants are also recommended for this walk.  We will be in an open sunny area, so bring water and sun protection such as a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen.  People will also want to bring binoculars and maybe a camera. 

All participants must sign a liability waiver, and must be at least 12 to participate in this activity.
