Wildlife Walk on La Chua Trail

Ranger Howard's last official Ranger-Led Hike


Although we hope to talk Ranger Howard Adams into providing a few interpretive programs at the prairie next year, this Saturday's Wildlife Walk will be Howard's last official ranger-led hike before his retirement at the end of the month.

As a passionate birder, this walk will be a fitting event as we hope to see sandhill cranes on the prairie before their migration north. 


Meet at 8:00 AM in the La Chua Trail parking lot by the kiosk.

$2 Per Person

Join one the Preserve’s rangers and take a walk on the wild side.  This leisurely paced excursion onto the Prairie basin via La Chua Trail provides a wonderful opportunity to observe the unusual plants and magnificent animals that inhabit the vast 21,000-acre preserve.  This walk varies in distance from 1 mile to 3 miles depending on conditions, wildlife sightings, and participant preferences.  If you’re feeling up to a 3 mile walk, La Chua Trail ends with an observation deck overlooking Alachua Lake.  Walk is 3 – 4 hours.  There is a 25 person limit.  Call 352-466-4100 for more information or to confirm walk.
