Description

Visit Savannas Preserve State Park on Saturday, July 6th to discover local biking opportunities available to you and your families!
The event will feature a showing of the film Gullah Geechee Corridor and the East Coast Greenway by Hankerson Henry Productions from 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. This documentary highlights the cycling community of Armstrong, Florida, while also showcasing St. Johns County's rich West and Central African history. Three cycling trails are featured in the film, including the East Coast Greenway trail which will eventually connect Florida to Maine. The 3,000-mile East Coast Greenway trail is a non-motorized transportation project covering fifteen states.
Following the documentary will be a short presentation on the East Coast Greenway trail in our local area! Learn the long-term plan for connecting existing trails, understand the different agencies working together to make this project a reality and discover the many benefits of the Greenway trail. Lastly, Club Scrub from Jonathan Dickinson State Park will share what their organization has to offer for biking trails, events and volunteer opportunities!
Throughout the day, families are encouraged to bring their bikes and head out on the trails at the Savannas Preserve State Park! There are more than 17 miles of trails to explore from 8:00 a.m. until sunset. Participants will be asked to pay the State Park Admission Fee of $3 cash per vehicle upon arrival to the Park. The event will be held at the Savannas Preserve State Park Education Center located at 2541 SE Walton Road, Port St Lucie, FL 34952. Call the Education Center with any questions: 772-398-2779.
