RELEASE DATE: May 2, 2012

LEESBURG – The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is inviting residents to attend a Florida Spring Wildflowers event on Saturday, May 5 from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Palatlakaha Environmental and Agricultural Reserve (PEAR Park) Nature Center, located at 4800 University Ave. in Leesburg.

At this event, participants will take a guided hike through PEAR Park’s meadow restoration area, as the Parks & Trails staff assists them in identifying the numerous wildflowers blooming throughout the area. This event is free and would-be participants are encouraged to make reservations, as space is limited.

This portion of the park also boasts a community garden, native butterfly garden, xeric garden, two scenic pavilions and access to 4 miles of hiking and nature trails.  The front 50 acres contain a playground, ball fields and dog park.
