A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Dylan Gavagni

The trails are lined with the vibrant colors of wildflowers, and the shade of the pine trees dance with the wind; the marsh is once again in transition from brown to green, and the water is full of life. Yes, spring months are upon us and with the warmth comes new life; be there to see the juvenile eagles flying the marsh, or the spotted fawn following the footsteps of its mother, you won’t be disappointed if you take the time to look and listen.
 
Park staff welcomes you and your family to come experience this unique landscape and “…the Real Florida.” Extending from Jensen Beach to Ft. Pierce, our preserve protects endangered landscapes and vital waterways including the Atlantic scrub ridge, freshwater marshes and the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. So, whether you are looking for a trail experience, educational program, kayak trip, or just relaxing wildlife viewing; come see what we have to offer!
 
Canoe / kayak trips are going out twice a week; please contact the Education Center for details at (772) 398-2779.
 
Please be mindful of trail signs and stay on designated paths; this is for your safety as well as the protection of this sensitive environment. Plan ahead, pack appropriately, and most definitely; enjoy your visit!
 
Don't forget to check out the Spring 2014 issue of Echoes - the newsletter of the Friends of Savannas Preserve State Park. Better yet, ask about becoming a member!
