Be adventurous and slog through a wetland habitat slough with Lisa Hickey, Certified Master Naturalist Instructor. Wetlands and freshwater habitats are vital natural systems that filter pollutants before they reach our surface and groundwater supply, support many wildlife species, and which are diminishing every year. Find out more intriguing facts while walking through Flatford Swamp in eastern Manatee County.
Meet in the Preserve’s parking area located at 39450 Taylor Road, Myakka City, approximately 25 miles east of I-75. Then as a group, we leave the parking area and drive south on Wauchula Road, 2 miles. We will be entering the south end of the preserve and hike into the wetland habitat areas.
