Reading the Tampa Times under Garden Events the Best bet was to go on a Florida Forest Hike at Brooker Creek Preserve. So I looked up the link on line and registered for this FREE EVENT. They are really well organized and use eventbrite to book their events.
What a wonderful surprise. No charge for parking, no entrance fee (donations accepted). When I arrived the staff was very welcoming. The displays are amazing in the education centre.
Guided tours are an amazing way to see Florida Forests in a safe educational group format. I recommend this for anyone. Brooker Creek Preserve is an amazing place you should add to your list of things to do and see in Florida.
Be certain to visit the Friends of Brooker Creek Store. Reasonable prices and great selection. They had native plants for sale for only $5 each.
I’m looking forward to attending future events at Brooker Creek Preserve.
