Hot Topics- Florida and Fire

Join us in the beautiful pine flatwoods and under the oaks along the banks of the South Fork of the St. Lucie River in the famous Halpatiokee Park. Not only will you experience an array of Florida habitats on this nature walk, you will get to have all your questions answered about fire in Florida’s natural lands.
