What:  Wildlands Walk in Amon Creek Natural Preserve
When:  Saturday, April 29, 9:00 a.m.
Where:  Starts at Claybell Park parking lot (near the corner of Bellerive Dr and Broadmoor St in Richland)

Did you know the area behind our neighborhood is actually a Preserve?  Tapteal Greenway is hosting one of their largest educational, outdoor events April 29 in the Preserve, formally known as Amon Creek Natural Preserve (ACNP).  The Wildlands Walk is a great opportunity for all ages to see what a treasure we have in the Preserve, including its wetland and shrub steppe ecosystems.

The Wildlands Walk begins at Claybell Park at 9:00 a.m. and consists of a guided 1.5 mile walk through the Preserve.  There will be stops at learning stations along the trail, where experts will be providing information and answering questions about:
·         Geology of ACNP and Amon Basin
·         Insects and reptiles of ACNP
·         Mammals of ACNP
·         Native plant restoration activity in ACNP
This is a fun event, and I highly recommend it.  I hope you can participate!
