GENTLE WALK AND TALK
Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park
2nd and 4th Thursday of the month - November through April
This gentle walk of approximately one mile will take you to the edge of the flooded prairie basin. Challenge yourself to identify birds, trees, and wildflowers, or just enjoy a peaceful stroll. If lucky, the sandhill cranes, bison, or wild horses may be seen. This walk is suitable for those who aren't ardent hikers but still want to have an outdoor Paynes Prairie experience. The pace is slow and comfortable and along the way we will stop and talk about what we see. Your guide will share Paynes Prairie history, including a tour of the old Camp Ranch horse barn. Bring your binoculars, field guides, and water. Be sure to wear sunscreen, closed toe shoes, and a hat or sunglass. A public restroom is available.
Cost $2 per Person
10 person limit. Call the Visitor Center at (352) 466-4100 for reservations.
