Guided tour of Grayton Beach State Park nature trail Nov. 3

October 19, 2016

 Time: 9 a.m.

Join Walton County Extension Agents Laura Tiu (marine science) and Evan Anderson (agriculture) for a walking tour of the Grayton Beach Nature Trail around Western Lake.

The one-mile nature trail winds through a coastal forest where scrub oaks and magnolias stand, bent and twisted by the salt winds. Explore the various ecosystems and the plants and animals that live there.

Please wear weather appropriate clothing and closed toe shoes.  The hike is moderately easy, but you will be walking in sand and over uneven woodland paths.  You will be responsible for paying park entrance on your own. Meet at 9 a.m. by the pavilion which has restroom facilities available. Bring your camera. After the tour, you may want to have lunch at one of the many unique restaurants along 30A.

Cost is $10. Click here to register.
