Calling All Wildlife Enthusiasts!

The Friends of Brooker Creek Preserve are hosting a Wildlife Safari this Saturday , April 16th, from 9 am – 3 pm.

Bring your children (4-12) and purchase a Safari Passport for $5 (parents and younger children are free). After receiving your passport you will join a hike group and you will walk the Brooker Creek Education Center trail. Along the trail, you will encounter five wildlife stations where live native animals will be on display. Each station will have a guide to talk about the animal and answer questions.

At the end of the trail, children with a completed passport, get to choose a nature gift from the Treasure Tent.

What animals will be at the Wildlife Stations?
Owls - from Boyd Hill Nature Center
Baby raccoons - from Wildlife Haven
Alligator - from Florida Wildlife Commission
Snakes - either from the Suncoast Herpetological Society or Pinellas County Schools
Bats and/or box turtles

A canteen tent will be selling snacks and t-shirts.

See you there!
